To get faster on the ice you need to improve your leg and core strength. I don't know what kind of shape you are in but if you are overweight then of course losing extra weight will help your speed.

But the best thing you can do is to work on your leg strength. Do plyometrics, lunges, squats (or even better power cleans, deadlifts, etc) and also start sprinting as well. Don't forget your core strength as it is surprisingly important in regards to speed. So work your stomach and lower back.
Exactly... You want to be lean. The more lean you are, the faster YOU will be. Less baggage for you to carry in terms of speed, acceleration and agility.
