I'm right-handed but play with a left stick.
I started playing hockey fairly late and asked my father (who played to a fairly decent level) for his advice on which stick to get. He told me "you're right-handed and your strong hand goes top, so get a left-hand stick". He himself is left-handed and used a right-hand stick, so it makes sense to me. Having done a bit of reading around the subject it also seems that 'strong hand top' is the generally accepted starting point for many new hockey players.
I can't imagine trying to poke check with my left hand and the few times I've tried using a RH stick it just felt plain wrong.
As for other sports, I can switch hit in both baseball/softball and also cricket.
