Are you new to this team? How old are you?
Hockey players tend to have a pack mentality. If these guys know each other really well/have been playing together for a long time, it's easy to feel like you're from another planet at first. But I assume that you're on the team for a good reason.
My point is that as long as you can play and you don't act like a total d-bag, both you and the rest of the team should be able to put your differences aside. On the flip side, if you prove yourself on the ice and they still treat you like an outsider, it might be time to find a different group.
I've been playing hockey for about 23 years and have played with people from all walks of life. Well over half of them I would never hang out with outside of the rink. But come puck drop, if they had my back and were all-in on the team concept, they were alright by me.
