Shutter speed is your problem...
In reply to Nadia373, Jan 15, 2012

As you stated above that you were shooting at 1/30th of a second...

That shutter speed will virtually NEVER get you in focus shots at any sports event - especially hockey...

1/30 is for flower pictures with no wind (generalizing of course) and is not even fast enough to get you many portrait shots in focus without motion blur...

Next time bump the ISO and open the f-stop - try to achieve a minimum shutter speed of 1/250th for peewee hockey and faster for more talented teenagers...
