To the OP, how old are you? How fit are you? What do you struggle with the most in hockey? Personally, I've had issues with my groin and am about to focus on improved my core strength and pelvic stability which I've just learned is very poor. I believe it's going to be a lot of balance board work.

Aside from that, I'm a cyclist so that's my go-to for cardio work.
You don't have to go to a crossfit gym to do a crossfit workout. My friend and I do it in our dorm rooms at college. You just need to know what you have to do and do it by yourself. If the time comes that you want to go to a crossfit gym, by all means, do it.

I play rugby so I do it because it has made me immensely stronger and better with the ball. If you don't have good mental toughness or you're not in very good shape, I would not recommend these workouts.
