And it's not development coaches who buy the kids the sticks. It's the kid who goes into the store with their parents and figures out which one he's comfortable with. And if hockey is the first sport, odds are he picks the lefty stick.
No.. but it was encouraged by the coaches. I didn't say ALL lefty sticks are because of the development coachs. My point was it was encouraged by them because stick handling is usually viewed as more important than a great slap shot. There is alot of left stick players now but there was a time when there were more right stick players.
