Second one is hard to tell without seeing it. Sounds like accidental contract though.
My advice to you, with limited skating skills and a lack of mobility you need to be more careful where or how you enter the play. Incident 1 for example, instead of going balls out to the net looking for the pass, pull up a little and wait for a rebound. Chances are, you'll have a better chance scoring on the rebound then scoring on the one-timer and the other player likely knows this as well and is thinking shot the entire time.
You need to be extra cautious because you can't rely on your skills to keep you out of harms way.
I agree with this post. You need to play within your limits. Don't go full speed if you can't do it safely. Of course accidents happen, though, so don't feel bad. And most importantly, don't even think about quitting! This is a great learning opportunity that will help you become more self-aware and better understand the game from ice-level. If you're a little more tentative, you might find that the game will slow down and that it's easier to read the play.
