It is (obviously) quite difficult to make a diagnosis over the internet, no matter how well the symptoms are described. This said though, given the type of pain you say you are experiencing and its location I'd hazard a guess at "Anterior Cruciate or Posterior Cruciate Ligament damage". These are quite common problems for sportspersons, especially in sports like ice hockey where twisting motions through the knee, caused by eversion/inversion of the feet, are a regular occurrence.

It can be a difficult injury to treat but the prognosis can vary greatly dependant upon age, weight, strength etc of the individual concerned. I would recommend seeing a specialist as soon as you can because left unchecked it can become very painful, even if it is just to rule out ACL/PCL damage.
