I always assumed that but some guy told me that would mean I shot lefty.. which makes sense because there are so many left-handed shots in the NHL. On the website I was on looking at sticks, a lot of them are only available in lefty shots.
All help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks :/
Someone once told me, the top hand should be the same hand you would hold your sword with
The reasoning is, that's the hand that has control on the stick, and never leaves it.
I'm right handed, and started shooting right handed at a young age, so I'm never changing it, although retrospectively it may have helped a little. I convinced my friend using that logic to go lefty, and I think he's had a lot of success with it.
