Absolutely you can. You said you haven't played in 10+ years so it's not like your jumping into some super competitive league (I don't think).
I played Varsity hockey without learning how to stop on my right side. I played roller for so long before ice, that stopping was a bit more difficult for me to learn because of how different stopping is in roller and ice. Then I never really learned when I played JV and Varsity because I didn't want to embarrass myself by not knowing how to stop at age 17. I could definitely play, I've been playing since I've been like 5 or 6. I just couldn't stop on the right side. I was limited in some games and you have to think about stopping sometimes because you're stopping on the wrong side by putting yourself in a bad/awkward position, but you technically still can get away with it.
