In-season off-ice workout/exercises

I'm soon gonna have access to a gym, starting in 2 weeks, all year round. I know that off-ice conditioning for hockey is mainly done in the off season during summer but I do think that it would be beneficial to go once or twice a week in the gym during hockey season.

Because I already go on the ice 4-5 times per week, I wouldn't be going to the gym more than 2-3 times. It's just that instead of doing nothing during my 3 hour long lunch breaks at university, I could go to the gym for an hour and work on specifics.

So, here's my question; what can I do during these in-season off-ice sessions?

I was thinking;

-if I have a really hard practise the day before or a game, I could go on the stationary bike to "loosen up" my legs, get a sweat and stretch.

-mobility exercises for hips/legs/knees/ankles. I have a little program that I used during summer to gain lower body mobility, I could use the same one.

-Stretching

-upperbody exercises for biceps/triceps, muscles that aren't used that much during hockey

-.....

Also, what should I avoid doing? Tips/advice/experiences/...?

I'd be glad if you guys could help me!

thanks a lot

Ok but my case is kinda special (no brag). I play hockey 4-5 times a week and this would only be specific workouts.

I searched and didn't find anything.

No offense it is not special at all. There are people on here that play 6-7 days a week.

Hockey is mainly in your legs and core (back and abs/chest)
you should work out your abs lightly a few times a week(3-4 based on your comfort), and your legs hard twice a week.
get to a local track and do plyo and explosive exercises, as well as alof of front and regular squats.
your groins, quads and your hammys are your driving muscles in a stride and those are the muscle groups you should concentrate
working out your chest will tone your arms on its own, no reason to go crazy with them. Use the bench press, standing and seated rows, and flys.
hope this helps a bit

You metioned developing your triceps and biceps. This would not do much at all you should improve your core and legs. That is all.
