I'm a rightie who shoots left. I've always wondered about this so often because I feel like my shot would be better with a rightie shot. I hit baseball rightie and when I'm using a broom I can feel the difference.

At one of my floor hockey games (the ones with the plastic sticks that are provided for you) I decided I was going to give a rightie stick a shot. I couldn't even get through warm up with it. I was willing to have my stickhandling suffer but shooting rightie felt completely awkward.

It just showed me that the top hand contributes a lot to your shot and pass in both power and accuracy, so for most people using your dominant hand makes sense.
