It was once explained to me that if you can do a dominant eye test for your kid (there are number of easy ways to determine on your own) then you want to shoot off of that side. In other words if his dominant eye is his left eye, he is best suited to shoot left and if it's the right eye then obviously the opposite applies. It helps give the player better control of the puck, more accuracy on his shots and so on.

intresting, i have never heard this before. Do you have any links or info that talks about this.

I cant really see (i know, bad pun) how a "dominant" eye would give you better puck control or accuracy.
