As a smaller guy who never played contact hockey as a kid - I'm curious, is there much difference between a deliberate check and the occasional collision you'll get in beer league pickup games?

Because if not, the key is just to being strong on your skates - use your lower center of gravity to its advantage and almost think about sinking into the ice as the collision is about to happen. A slightly wider stance does help that.
