I'm amazed nobody ever pointed this out to me, it seems 100% analogous.
It makes sense but the feel is off. Every type of sport I play with a 'stick' I hold the same. Baseball, Tennis, Lacrosse, Golf, Hockey. It's tough to switch one. If my left hand isn't at the end, it feels very weird. I even shovel or broom with my right hand on the bottom!

But I do want to buy a LH blade to try to practice with and see if I can 'overcome' the 'block' of not being able to adjust to lefty.

I do know what you mean by if you just flip your wrists (from holding a bat righty), you will be gripping a left handed hockey stick.
