I'd put my money on the patella tendon being the source of the pain if it is under the knee cap. You describe a lot of the same things I experience. Be sure to ice your knee immediately after skating...like within 10 minutes.

Funny thing about landings....you tend to come down the way you go up. I'd concentrate on jumping "straight" up. The travel of the jump will happen. Head over shoulders over hips over feet...that should be your mantra. :-)

I've noticed with myself when playing around with singles, the ones where I have a "perfect" take-off that I don't have pain on the landings. The jumps that demonstrate all my bad habits have pain on the landings.
