If you are in a large enough metro area you should be able to find something that will work for you. I know there are lots of over 50 tournament teams in the U.S. and Canada. The Snoopy Tournament in CA. every year has a 70+ division and those guys can still play. I would doubt that the chippiness is any less but you shouldn't see too many full collisions. I've played with ex-pros that are in their 60's and one in his 70's and they would slash your gloves off you before you could blink because they couldn't catch you by skating anymore. They come from a time of different hockey and that's how they have always played.
