When you're new to hockey don't expect to get many looks with the puck.
At drop-in you will find all kinds of players. The 50 year old who's been playing since he was 6, the 20-year old who's faster and more skilled than anyone, the beer league guy who gets tired fast, and people who can barely skate.
Just go out and have fun. Watch and learn from what other guys, especially the experienced ones do on the ice. You can learn a lot from their basic positioning, body movement and bags of tricks.
Hockey is a game that some people take a while to progress with, others can catch on with quickly. The main thing is to not give up, and find as much ice-time as you can.
I try to get out on the ice twice a week if possible. I'm in two leagues so I haven't done much drop-in/pickup lately.
