Can't really speak on what workouts you should do as I don't do them myself but I imagine things like squats would help out. Also I imagine sprints would help with the quick bursts that are crucial in hockey.

As for the equipment I would advise, if you can wait that long and have the means, that you go get fitted properly at a hockey shop. Hockey gear, especially skates, all fit differently and it's a crapshoot when ordering online. Your body will appreciate a properly fitted outfit. Check the sticky threads here in The Rink for more info on gear.

Lastly, hockey players in general seem to be extremely nice and shouldn't give you a hard time for just starting up. Don't worry about that. I guarantee you they all remember when they first started so they aren't hard on noobs.
