So many misconceptions when it comes to nutrition/diet and strength and conditioning. You should talk to a personal trainer who specializes in athletic training and preferably hockey.

Matt Duchene more energized through changed training regime

One of the best hockey related training articles I read. Explains quite well how functional training and a better diet can immediately make you a better athlete and thus a better hockey player.

---If you wish to know more, please pvt message me. I have researched and studied athletic training as well as use it in my own daily training for years now--

Which is why a home-workout program such as p90x/p90x2 may be a good option IMO. Functional fitness that targets all areas of the body
