Some good captures in there... but I honestly think you'd get better image quality at ISO3200 and more exposure in-cam than shooting ISO1600 underexposed and brightening in post. I shot older bodies worse for high ISO results than the 40D at ISO3200 and as long as you expose to the right you should be able to make it work respectably. Sure, we'd all like to have arena lighting that allows 1/800th at ISO800, but until they start hiring photographers to consult with building contractors for new rinks, we have to make the adjutments...
They're still coming off dark IMHO, so maybe try to get more exposure in-cam and bump the ISO if you can't swing the f2.8 just yet...
