Ovechkin is a bad example to use, because in Russia, all children are forced to learn to write with their right hands. It is actually kind of amazing that he was allowed to play hockey and shoot right growing up, as most russian and european players shoot left. He is most likely left handed and writes right handed due to cultural circumstances.
As a lefty, I play guitar normally, or right handed, with my left hand fretting, I do this so I can have better dexterity with the fretboard. I tried playing lefty, and it was very awkward, but felt very natural playing right handed.
Back to the topic at hand, honestly I think a person should use whatever is most comfortable. I think within the first 2-6 months of playing you should switch back and forth until you find what works best for you, and after that commit fully to it.
