Thanks for tips, guys.
I learned some things at the game today. First of all, they put me on a team that seems pretty patient, which is good, because I had to go through explaining to half of them that this was literally the first time I've ever played any kind of organized hockey before.
Secondly, I learned three vital things:
1) Hockey is harder than baseball.
2 ) I suck at hockey.
3) I have the lung capacity of a 135 year old man.
And a 4th thing: Teammates are much more patient when you are winning 4-3 with a minute to go in the third then when you are losing 3-0 with 15 to play in regulation.
I whiffed on a one timer from the slot which was my only scoring chance. I was offside on one occasion, and I gave up a pretty retarded turnover. But in 3, 18 minute periods, rotating only 8 guys, that isn't that bad... I wasn't on the floor for any of the goals, which means that none of my mistakes led to anything major. I consider this a personal victory.

So there's my line on the league web-site. One of those is penalty minutes though, so that's undeniably a good thing.
