I'm a righty who shoots right too. Does anyone know why so many people switch up? It would also be interesting to know how many NHLers shoot the same side as they write.

Me too. I was a bit confused by the question at first because of all the "righter" words

What about golf? I find it strange that it's about 50/50 when you talk about right/left handed hockey players, but rightys totally dominate the golf courses. Personnaly, I'm a left handed hockey player who shoots left in golf. And i write with my right.

I write right, shoot left and bat left.

I find the weird people are those who shoot left and bat right. Or vice-versa.

I'm a righty and shoot right. My rights pretty much dominate for all sports I think.

This is a good question, righty vs lefty, I read an article once where it said that the majority of the people's top hand is their most dominate hand because it never leaves the stick and this usually determines which way you shoot. There are of course always exceptions to the rule but it said that the majority of hockey players shoot left because there are more right handed people.

This was an old article so things might have changed, but I think the 1972 Russian team were all left handed shots? There was a reference to how they determined who would play their wrong side (ie. right wing, shooting left handed). They choose the players who shot opposite to the way they write, apparently it's a European thing?

Anyways, I'm right handed, shoot left in hockey & golf, and I bat left. My brother-in-law is really weird, he writes left, throws right, bats left, shoots left, golfs right.

Although they're all sticks, the way you hold each one greatly influences balance, which would explain the differences.

I'm part of the majority ... Righty that shoots left ! I poorly bat from both sides tho

I'm right handed...

shoot left
bat either way
golf either way
throw right

It's funny, I can play golf & baseball either way, but I can't shoot right in hockey for the life of me, I can barely even get a shot off.
