I mean a player who can shoot both from right and left.

They'd have to play with a straight stick and I feel like the speed of the game would make it tough, because they would constantly have to change their grip.. Just seems like its something that is heavily discouraged

There probably are. It's just more beneficial to play with a curved stick.

it would be interesting to watch ambidexter's deking when he's changing his grip.

I think Abdelkader is probably the closest. Only need to switch a few letters.

It would be interesting: A team is low on available right-handed defensemen, one of them can start shooting right instead of left.

I remember #12 (jersey with the big "C" small "H") switching up while going through the team with the "B" on their jersey and scoring.
Late 60's....my earliest memory of HNIC.

already a thread here

Brodeur can shoot right or left. It helps having a flat paddle.

That was my goal of the year.

Never seen anything like that before, and probably won't see something like that again.

I heard Gordie Howe could shoot both left and right.

No, that's just wrong.

If I played hockey I think I'd quite like to try to be ambidextrous. Could be very useful, if you were good enough to do it.

I played on a rollerhockey team with a guy who shot left and used a left handed curve but would switch it around to make certain plays. It was actually effective. He was also playing in the dub at the time and was better then most people in our league.

Being able to shoot both left and right equally would make someone ambidextrous in hockey
