I learned from a coach about dynamic stretches and I havent had a problem since. When I get on the ice I skate a few laps, spin the stick around in one arm and then go to the other. Then while still skating, I bend over and put my stick at the front of my skates, hold it for a bit and then do it towards the back of my skates. After that I put the stick above my shoulders and rotate a bit and then the same with my behind my back. I will usually finish it off with a few outside and inside edge drills and then I am ready to rock.
The best dynamic stretches are with foam rollers.
I never have injury problems due to pulled muscles etc because I do 20 minutes of foam rolling before I play. Its simple and very effective.
Ditch the static stretching.
