As far as American players are concerned I think it has to do with the fact that hockey is not a natural sport for us. Everyone is used to baseball so they think if you swing righty you'll want the stick to be on that side as well. Or the simple fact that sticks are labeled 'RH' so parents and people in general think "If you're a righty you must need a righty stick."
