EXACTLY the same as I would play any male player except that, if it's a situation where real hitting is allowed I will not throw my full weight into a hit. I will hit to separate them from the puck but not to put them on their ass. It's worth noting though, that it depends on the skill level as well. I played college hockey. I've played casual pick up when I go back to my home town where the general skill level is a lot lower than the group I usually I play with and I give everyone space to play and don't check them very tightly or pressure them too much; I believe at a casual pickup game everyone should have fun and have a chance to make plays. I play players according to their individual skill level in these situations and only heavily pressure players who can still make things happen against tight checking. I've also played against girls who played extremely competitive, full contact hockey and can really play. I play them just like I would my closest friends.
