Off-season

I've improved my game greatly over the past two years in regards to hockey skills, but I feel that I need to work more on strength and speed building during my off-season. Basically, I can shoot and deke pretty decently, but I'm easy to bump off the puck and not very fast. I'm currently 6'0" and 165 pounds, and unfortunately because of the great amounts of time I spend on the ice I continue to lose weight.
Does anyone know what kind of workouts I can do at home to get built? I don't have anyone to take me to a gym or anything. I haven't gotten a straight-up answer from searching around the net so I hope someone can help me here. I can see my arms losing mass over time and I want to get some of the mass back while I'm at home.

If you are as good as you say you are...then you should definately try to spend more time bulking up, cuz at 6' 165 lbs, you are going to have a lot of trouble getting to the next levels. Gym time would be best with high proteins, doing weights with low reps, high weight. 3 to 5 reps with the highest load you can take. Running hills or stairs to improve your leg strength, or skating/running with a parachute. If you do not have a lot of money then you can do a lot of upper body and lower body exercises at home...for example push ups with some sort of weight on your back...Isometric exercises are great too...be creative and if you look on the web, YOU CAN find plenty of exercises...good luck!

pizza and beer for 2 weeks will help you gain the weight you need.

That was intended to be a joke, it obviously wouldn't turn someone into an alchoholic in 2 weeks...but it would be a good reason to drink beer and eat pizza for 2 weeks!
