I play tennis and this sport called bandy, members in scandinavia know what I'm talking about. Bandy is kind of like a mix between hockey and soccer. The rink is the size of a soccer field and we use slightly curved sticks. We also play with a ball roughly the size of a tennis ball, slightly smaller, and the goals are the size of soccer goals. Everybody is on skates, and the goalie get's extra padding but is not allowed a stick. Since the size of the rink is so huge there is less contact than hockey mainly because people are moving so fast it would be difficult to actually make a good hit on them, but the other portion of it is that most forms of real aggressive contact are against the rules.
