Must be a regional thing because from what I understand 'dominant hand top' is the generally accepted correct way to play.
I'm thinking Righties playing Righty and Lefties playing Lefty has to do with the fact that hockey isn't a traditional sport in those regions so when they jump in they just go with what they know. People grow up righty, swinging bats righty, swinging golf clubs righty, throwing righty, and so on. So why not shoot righty?
