get a helmet, get a helmet, get a helmet!
I definitely agree that you should either do some learn to skate classes of at least go out to public skate for awhile and work on the basics but you really need to have a helmet and probably shin pads before you really start learning to skate for hockey. like someone else said, you're going to be falling and it's very easy to fall and hit your head while ice skating. I did it several years ago when I was first learning and ended up with a wicked concussion and a $1500 hospital bill.
