Of your 3 choices swimming would be the activity that would probably be best so to not tighten your muscles. It would probably let your retain flexibility needed for hockey
Dont know if Id say terrible but I understand his point. Anyways for rec players it probably not that much of an issue. And you can always do stretches for hips.
