I have the same issue. I am not a great skater yet, but I try to contribute and hustle for pucks which causes me to get into the way of people at times. Most notice that it is not on purpose but there is always that one guy taking exception. Last time I stretched out my leg to stop a puck (won't do that again, seemed dangerous in retrospect) and made an opponent have to dodge it. Apologized but still got a ****** look from him. The rest of the day he spent tripping me against the boards and just generally being rather untactful, shoving when he could. That definitely was fun...
