Young defenseman help?

Hey HFBoards! Im 16 and i play Major Midget AAA hockey with the best team in the league. Although I only get called up on replacements when someone gets injured/cant play.

I really want to make the jump to become a top defenseman on the team next year and hopefully get signed to play in the QMJHL. (The Q scouts our league a nice bit)

Whats holding me back is my physical conditioning. I havent worked out/trained a day in my life because i dont know what to do for it! Where i live also gets the ice taken off every summer and there are no legit training places (We have a gym but thats it, no trainers)

I'm a smart player, which is probably my best skillset. Im probably the weakest skater,shooter and hitter on our team.

What I'm trying to say is that... Can I go from barely playing any games, to being the best defenseman on the team just by training hard? Or will I need to do on-ice drills.
