I am not an expert on steroids, but I personally have trained with many high caliber hockey players in the summer, including a few NHLers. My younger brother also played pro in the States and Europe. I can personally say that I am aware of only three guys who took roids and they were all fighters. My brother also said that he only knew of fighters juicing. During the season there is very limited weight training. Most of the workouts are plyometrics and cardio during the season.
I may be mistaken here, but without consistent weight training, steroids would be more of a detriment than a benefit; throughout the season at least.
