Most American hockey players use a right hockey stick in contrast to other countries where most hockey players use a left stick. We hypothesize that most Americans use the wrong hockey stick and that a right hand dominant hockey player should use a left hockey stick and vice versa to gain an inherent performance advantage by having the dominant hand controlling the stick.
