Off ice stuff is important too, in the locker room get involved in conversations with the other guys and have a bit of banter, don't be the quiet guy who just sits there or only talk to your friend. Be committed to the team, always show up on time for practice and games.

I was in the same situation a few years ago, I finished junior hockey and went to be a backup goalie for a mens team where I didn't know anyone. I did all the little off ice things and supported the team on the bench and got the respect of all the guys. They know I'm not the best goalie and 3 seasons later I'm still the backup and only play a few games but they consider me a great team guy and that's what you want from a backup goalie.
