How long did you play right handed before switching? I've played right all my life, nothing ever serious though just roller hockey in parking lots, etc. I've started ice hockey recently and for some reason I feel like I should be playing lefty all of a sudden, it feels more natural (at least that's what my brain is telling me) yet I've never tried playing left handed other than just screwing around. Right handed is what I'm comfortable with since it's what I've played with all my life. Basically wondering if I should bother trying to switch to see if its better as a lefty or just remain right handed.
