3 things come to mind.
1) Shooting(lower hand in particular)
2) Lifting the stick of opposing players especially if he doesn't want his stick lifted. A lot of bicep there.
3) Faceoffs and especially reverse grip when your pulling it back.
Biceps are a big muscle and should be trained like anything else. I think someone on here just tore one playing hockey. How do you tear it if you aren't using it?
Biceps are actually a small muscle and don't need "much" training. I used to be an avid competitive powerlifter and most guys who lifted for strength never did bicep work other than what you did for Rows, Pullups, or Pulldowns.
If you want to get stronger, work more on speed strength and training your triceps to increase your presses.
