I was in a similar situation. I played up until about age 30 then hung it up, and never even skated for 13 years. Just returned to playing a couple years ago and am very happy I did. Playing hockey will force you into getting into better shape than if you weren't playing, so that's one side benefit. But it did take a while for the level of skating to come back. I had to really focus on leg strength to get back to where I was with the skating, so I would do a lot of off ice stuff like squats, etc., and it helps. Still don't have the quickness that I had before but I suppose that's more age than anything and I never will. But it's a lot of fun and that's all that counts.
