Don't underestimate children's intelligence. At some point in life you, yourself, realized that fighting in hockey is different than fighting on the street... and that fighting in the NHL is different than fighting at your local rink.

Unless the kid has a behavioral disability, simply saying "NHL players are allowed do that, but you aren't" is sufficient.
