Considering the situation what do you think of my plan?
If you want to work on wrist strength, Olympic lifting, handstands and ring work will do wonders!
Try out a P92 (Bauer) or Hall (Easton) curve with a 75 or 87 flex. I find the curve is good for learning stick handling and is a good all around curve. I think the curve is called Draper in Warrior? Not sure about CCM. Make sure you cut it down between your bottom lip and chin!
