I would say that leg presses are not bad, especially if you are already doing squats and other knee dominate lifts. where the leg press helps is you've done your other lifts and this lets you burn out the muscles in a safe way. the key is to mix it up and to workout in many planes. hockey is a played in multiple planes, you should train in multiple planes. dont just do back squats, throw in some front squats, some heavy dumbell squats, even heavy dumbell deadlifts. I like to finish my leg workouts with heavy db front squats (hold 1 db pinched between both hands vertically and do a couple of 20-25 rep sets) try not to puke...
