Not to derail this threa any further, but I'll just add that maybe you think this because you grew up playing in BC?

I was just reading one of those articles again and apparently BC is the reverse in terms or righties and lefties from the rest of Canada.

The US also has a lot of righties hence the reason there's more recently since their development program has gotten better and there's more in the NHL now.

Oddly, British Columbia — sometimes said to be the most American-like of the Canadian provinces — skews the other way. “The rest of the country goes 2 to 1 in favor of left sticks, but it’s reversed in B.C.,” said Marc Poirier, a customer service representative who handles Canadian orders for Warrior Sticks.
