I've been playing since I was 12 (16 on indoor rinks) and I'm 37. At 26 (when I left the military) I began to put on a lot of weight, over 90 pounds in 8 years. A desk job and not working out just killed me. Also killed my game. I still had the hands, but no more speed and stamina.

So 3+ years ago I began to really focus on losing weight and getting my game back. I hit the gym doing just some light strength training, stationary bike, and elliptical. No light workouts, I really worked hard in there and I still do. I also began to watch what I ate. 86 pounds later, I'm nearly the player I was (if not better) than I was at 26. I too get mistaken for much younger than I really am. I rarely get tired on the ice and have no problems keeping up with kids 20 years younger than me.

So to sum up, some really good cardio will help out your stamina in a big way...
