So I decided to see how the split is setup between the NHL for lefties and righties. The old stereotype is that the US favors right handed shooters and Canada favors left handed shooters. So anyway, I went to NHL.com, went to individual stats, then bios and copied and pasted the data into a spreadsheet. Here's what I was able to find: Interestingly enough, the USA has a higher percentage of left handed shooters than Canada (skewed by defensemen). Other (which I believe is all Europeans) is highly skewed toward the left. Overall, every country is skewed to the left.
