here's a long writeup I did on hockey gear recommendations
. Most of what you have is under what I would consider adequate for beginners. While that doesn't mean you're going to get hurt or need to run out and spend more money, I think that if you stick with it you'll likely want/need to upgrade just about everything down the road.
As for the size of rec leaguers, it's all over the map. I wouldn't worry about it for rec hockey as there is (or shouldn't be at least) any hitting aside from incidental contact. At 5'10 165 you'll probably be in better shape than most players.
