As others have said, top hand on the stick ought to be the dominant one. This gives better overall control.

It's the opposite in baseball and golf, where right handers usually hit with their right hands on top. This has more to do with the wrist and elbows than it does with the hand itself (just as hockey has more to do with the shoulders and waist than the arms).

If you're right handed and shoot right like me, it's fine if you practice and weight train so that your shoulder/hand can control the stick. I can pick up and wave the stick around with my left just as well as my right.
