If you want to try and work on your sprints the best training I have found for this was the following (treadmill required and definitely should be in solid shape before attempting this)

- do a light jog for a couple minutes (after you have done some sort of stretching stuff of course)

Now comes hell

- increase the hill level on the machine to the highest it goes and sprint for 30-45 seconds
- lower it to 2-3 (if it has a 10 scale) and jog for a minute or so
- increase the hill and sprint
- lower it
- do this til you can't and then do one more

you get the idea. It sucks, it hurts, you might throw up. But you will absolutely gain explosiveness and endurance with this.

Another great workout to do by yourself on the ice is to:


start at the face off dot (any one will do)
- Side step to the right and hockey stop at the end of the circle (with just your right foot)
- Side step to the left and hockey stop at the end of the circle (with just your left foot)
- come back to the middle and sprint in front of you and hockey stop at the end of the circle
- skate backwards as fast as you can and hockey stop at the end of the circle behind you

This one really helps your edges and endurance
