I'd also say realize you will make a huge mistake or do something embarrassing at some point. How you handle that mistake lets the guys you're playing with know what kind of teammate you are. Every one has made a big mistake at some point, so just try and remeber what happened, how to avoid it next time, and move on from it.
My 5th game ever I was switched to D. I had just gotten the puck and had a guy bearing down on me. I tried to get a little fancy on my escape move, couldn't keep an edge and watched the puck go right to their guy for and easy breakaway and goal while I sat on my butt.
Went to the bench, told the guys my bad, and not 5 minutes later had almost the exact same thing happen. This time though I made a better decision on the escape move, made a nice pass and we had a 2 on 1.
Overall just enjoy yourself and don't take things to seriously. Have fun.
