I've found found most hockey players to be fairly cool guys. Not sure, but your experience seems like a bit of "pack mentality" at work. For guys who've played together for awhile, especially at a higher (more intense level) they tend to band together so if you hurt one you hurt them all. If you're playing in a beginner's league I'd expect it's more low key, and I'd be very surprised if you played with guys like that.
