make sure to keep your runs short (5k or less).... and make sure you are eating enough calories (especially protein)

Not saying do a search in an attempt to avoid answering you while answering you, but there is some real good information in a few threads about HIIT, and some other items. I wouldn't do it justice trying to put it here on memory.

High-Intensity-Interval-Training. It's the concept of mixing sprinting w/jogging to get more out of your workout in less time. Hockey is a game of explosive speed, and thus HIIT totally lends itself to the best athletes.

I'm no expert on it, but I'd say that you want to do about 60 seconds of jogging followed by a 30 second sprint. Rinse, lather, repeat.

If you're an "average joe" that's just starting out then weightlifting is going to do more good than harm. If you're a serious hockey player that's already pretty strong, you may benefit more from plyometrics than weightlifting.

Probably putting a little rest in there is a good idea too. After that 30 second sprint (if you can make it all 30 seconds), you're shot. There's a reason why you take 45 - 60 second shifts, come off for two minutes and go back on. I prefer to follow the same format.

I found a book written by a PHD who trains trainers on NHL teams at Borders Bookstore. It helped me out a ton but I had been lifting weights regularly already for about 6 years and had a personal trainer. Everybody will have different opinions on this subject so you really have to find something that suits where you are at physically and helps you feel better. Some people feel better after running triathlons, some people like to lift giant tires. From my experience I have seen a few guys who bragged about hom much they ran and I started to laugh when they got exhausted after a long shift. An-aerobic and aerobic exericse are 2 totally different animals. And if I tried to run a marathon I would be holding my side after a few minutes.

This isn't necessarily true.
All NHL players run and so do boxers, and yet a lot of them have large muscle mass still.

The rule of thumb is to make sure you do your long distance running, or cardio, 8 hours before or after a workout.

If you perform cardio right after a workout your body will use muscle to get the energy it needs for the run.

But long distance running won't do anything to help your speed, only endurance.

Perform HIIT (google it) to get explosiveness and to lose weight. And believe it or not, you can do these exercises after weight training. Because it should only be done for 5 to 10 minutes, it won't burn any muscle during the process.
Also, HIIT has been proven to burn fat long after you've finished your last interval - in some cases up to 48 hours after the HIIT session was completed.
