I broke my tibia and fibula last year during a hockey game. Thanks to a rod and some screws I can skate for fun now, but I definitely understand your frustration.
The best thing for you now is rest. If you're missing hockey that bad, play some hockey video games or watch some team drill videos online (don't watch skating drill videos, it'll just make you sad that you can't skate).
Once your doc gives you permission to use your leg, get on a stationary bike every day. You're going to lose a lot of muscle and flexibility in your leg from the inactivity and surgery. The stationary bike will help you get the flexibility back in your ankle. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can really do about it now.
Good luck! I feel your pain (literally!),
