So I may be able to switch back and forth depending on the needs of the team.
I'm in the same situation (left-handed and have always shot left). Only skated out once since I thought about changing handedness and haven't had a chance to try it yet. Been messing around in general shooting right just by holding my stick the other way at home and making various motions. It doesn't necessarily feel any better or worse than shooting left. Might try it on the ice if I can get ahold of a cheap right-handed stick.
