I had the same experience playing in an advanced adult league in CA. I'd played contact for 25 years and I couldn't turn off the habits. The league I was in we got fined $50 and suspended 1 game after 40 pims and then every 20 pims after that. Got 24 pims the first game all on plays that would have been legal hits in a checking league. Paid more in fines than I did in season dues. Played some college club hockey after that because it was full contact but no more adult leagues. I can play no contact hockey now playing pick up but I don't know if I want to try a league again.
