It's a little different in league games.
Even if a new player is doing everything right, I am less likely to pass to that person because the newer players tend to flub passes and make turnovers.
It's not out of spite, disrespect, or anything like that, it's just that we like to win, so I tend to pass to players who are more likely to make a smart/effective play with the puck. I generally enjoy playing with everyone, and I certainly will pass to new players at times, I'm just somewhat less likely to do so in any given situation.
Rather paradoxical. The noob to be in a position to receive a pass or make a play has obviously beaten another player be it another noob or heaven forbid a league regular and/or he has outworked the team regulars to get in that position.
Your attitude is rather self defeating.
