I know little about hockey all I know is that there is shoving with enough momentum you should probably take anyone down so I don't think you'll need to much muscle for that.. I'd probably go with muscle endurance since you'll be skating back and forth for the most part stronger muscles might get you started faster but I think endurance is really what is gonna help you.

I dont know much about hockey, but if it were me, I would work on muscle endruance on my legs, so you can skate faster and longer than your opponents, as for arms; I would do some of both, cause you want to be able to have a good and powerful shot, but you dont want that shot to get you tired throughout the rest of the game.

just coz u play hockey doesn't mean u have to choose between enurance or strength..

for example, i think this will be a nice routine for you:

day 1: upper body emphasis - endurance (light) day
day 2: lower body emphasis - strength (heavy) day
day 3: off / gpp
day 4: upper body emphasis - strength (heavy) day
day 5: lower body emphasis - endurance (light) day
day 6: off
day 7: off / repeat from day 1

well, thats what i have in mind.. if u want further details and u are interested in this routine... post here and i will get back to u...

ashimmatthan has a point. for another workout idea there is something I've been looking into and that's a workout style call Strength Endurance. A thread I started has something a workout for this style. basically you do 8-15 sets of 2-6 reps. with about 60 sec rest in-between. this is hard as hell. It allows you to work real heavy but still use a volume similar to strait up endurance training, and you don't do that many exercises because of the volume of work your doing.

For example, you could do 4 sets of 15 using maybe 50-65% of your 1RM or
you can do 10 sets of 4 and use 75-85% of your 1RM

another workout that is very similar in nature to this is Advanced German Volume Training (AGVT). The only real difference is the amount of time you rest in-between sets. I would try AGVT first to get a feel for it then using similar layouts start shortening the time you rest.

I play a lot of hockey and being able to have your legs through 3 periods is very important. Working your legs for strength probably will provide you with endurance to last all 3 periods. Having upper body strength also will help you in front of the net and in the corners. You have to be able to skate, so that makes your legs most important, but having upper body strength is also important. So pretty much just do what you feel will be the best for you. Also I've heard an announcer say that Joe Sakic works his legs on the day of games. He says that it helps him keep his legs for the entire season, so this is something to look into.
