I have heard the best way to increase your stamina in hockey is wind sprints starting out sprinting for 15 seconds then resting for 30 and do this 10 times in a row every other day for two weeks
Then increase it to 30 seconds of sprinting one minute of resting for the same 10 times every other day for two weeks.
Then after that increase it to 45 seconds of all out sprinting and resting for a minute and a half.
This is the best way to simulate a hockey game because on average you have a 45 minute shift then are sitting for a certian length of time.
You can do this easily at a nearby High School track.
I actually did this for my high school hockey team, and my speed/stamina increased dramatically. Also, if you want to shed a few pounds this is a great idea as well.
