Changing from right shot to left shot?

Was thinking about this:
Björn Borg, a swedish right-handed top tennis player in the seventies also played icehockey.
He was one of the first players to use the two handed backhand stroke (putting his left hand between his right hand and the head of his racket). Why did he do this? Because it seemed natural to him as a hockey player (he must be a lefty in hockey then).
I bet Rafael Nadal would be a hockey righty, because he's a tennis lefty with a two handed backhand stroke. Roger Federer would play hockey one-handed
So to get back to the original question: if thinking you should change the side of your hockey stick, would you also consider to swap your racket hand in racket sports?
Are there hockey righties out-there that play racket sports using their right hand? Or hockey lefties that play left-handed racket sports? And if so, did you first start to play hockey or the racket sport?
Hope not to be too confusing.
