Is it open pick up or are you the organizer?

If you're the organizer and a guy is doing that, tell him to find a new place to play hockey. We've had a few cases at my old Saturday night hockey where some guys had to be asked to go home... but to be fair, the guys that play there all whine about accidental contact. It's gotten to the point where nobody will play the man along the boards

Conversely, my work group plays full out hockey. We more or less play full contact hockey (no blatant attempts to injure) and nobody makes apologies for accidental contact or hitting a guy with a puck. Basically you'll get filled in if you don't keep your head up or pay attention near the boards.

...the point I'm trying to make is that there are pickup groups that accomodate to all styles of hockey. If you're the odd man out in a group, find a new place to play. If other people are the odd ones out and are creating problems, tell them to tone it down or hit the road.
