Yes, you should use curved hockey stick as it makes passing, shooting, and stick handling better. There are two types of curves(right and left) and you should chose the stick which corresponds with the way you shoot.

If this is your first hockey stick and you don't know which way you shoot yet, then a stick with a non-curved blade will do short-term.

Who invented the first curved hockey stick?

Tradition has it that the curved hockey stick was discovered accidentally by Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull of the Chicago Blackhawks back in the 1960's. One of them , I believe it was Mikita, accidentally caught his stick blade in the one of the doors in the boards, cracking and bending it, but not breaking it all the way off. When one of them took a shot with the bent stick they were amazed by what the puck did in its flight. They soon perfected a method of curving their sticks for game use and soon the curved blades were used all over the league.
