Absolutely. The point is that figure skating emphasizes a couple of skills (balance and edge control, among other things) that just playing hockey doesn't emphasize as much, but from which a hockey player can definitely benefit.

It's like lifting weights; you're not ever (in a hockey game) going to actually be doing bicep curls or squats, but those exercises strengthen muscles that will have an effect in your hockey game nonetheless.
