I've heard that alot too and I've had a lot of people ask if I'm canadian after they find out I'm right handed and see me play hky left. I'm not sure of the numbers but I assume that 70-80% of the lefty hockey players are right handed. Something interesting: I haven't met too many left handed people who play righthanded (although there are some.)

After more intense hockey training and working out in high school and college I can now bat right or left for baseball too!
