Call the main office and let them know you're looking to play and they'll more often than not find a team that is short on players for you to jump on.
I agree. Island Ice Hockey (aka Midnight Hockey) as well as Hockey long Island are both well run adult leagues on Long Island (most of the rinks on LI are located in Nassau and the offer leagues that try to cater to more eastern players such as myself). They both offer leagues all the way down to D and E level and you shouldn't have any problems keeping up.
On another note, you should hit up a few open hockey nights in the meantime. Syosset offers open hockey on Sun, Tues, and Thurs nights. Dix Hills (Suffolk) has a Friday night slot, and I think Long Beach may have a session as well but not sure when.
