This reminds me of my first year playing hockey for a small school in Winnipeg. It had been years since I played organized hockey complete with hitting.
My first practice I got leveled about 6 times and it was the best thing for me. After that, I learned to keep my head up and my game improved dramatically. I don't believe I got hit clean the rest of the year.
And with hitting, I found that you could definitely pull of more moves because guys are always looking for the hit and I was able to dangle pucks around them easier.
Good luck and have fun!
