I think that shot side and handedness are two separate things. I saw a left handed stick at work today and thought of this thread. I also wanted to try stick handling on a rink board. I suffered from wrist lock when on the left side.

The NHL having more left shots than in the general population is probably due to it being advantageous having your dominant hand on top when in your natural form. One more thing that helps make them a 1 in x000 player. Ovechkin, Giroux, Selanne, Eberle, Lemieux all are right shots with dominant right hands.
