The right-handed players playing right are the minority in international ice-hockey.
One interesting thing: in field hockey, you are only allowed to play right! Kind of strange rule and stated the wrong way ;-)
I was responding to you saying baseball must not effect US goalies. It in fact does. A right handed baseball player will "shoot" left as a goalie so that they can catch with the same hand as in baseball.
