i don't know who made it, but i know who first wore a goalie mask. well back then, they didn't like to wear masks< but they got injured tons of times. Jaques Plante, a goalie for the Montreal canadaians got hit in the face and was injured. however he needed to continue the game because his back up wasn't there. Jaque practiced with a small wood mask for months but never used it in a game. He had no choice. He wore it, continued to wear it, and it got around the nhl.

The main purpose of a goalie mask is to protect the face of the goalie in a hockey game.

Who invented the goalie mask?

Probably the actual inventor of the mask will remain unknown. Masks were worn by some goalies after injuries even way back in the early days of hockey. However, goalie Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens is credited with making the mask a permanent part of the goalie's equipment back in the fifties. I would suggest you Google Plante or goalie masks to obtain more information.

Who was the first NHL goalie to wear a face mask?

Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons wore one for the one game in the 1920s, but it impeded his vision so he never wore it again. Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens is generally credited as the first to wear the mask regularly. More info: collectionscanada The first goalie ever to wear a hockey mask was Clint Benedict. He wore it for just one game but he was still the first to wear a hockey mask!Other people say that Jacques Plante wore the first mask but he didn't because it was in the 1950's that he wore a mask and in the 1920's is when Clint Benedict wore a mask! Yes, Clint Benedict was the first person to wear a mask in an NHL game, after diving on his knees and getting hit in the face by a puck. He purchased it at a local Boston sports store. Although, Jacques Plante is considered the first, it was actually Benedict who was the first one a mask.


Who invented the hockey goalie mask?

Fibreglass Canada worked with Canadiens Goalie Jaques Plante to develop the first-ever hockey goalie mask in 1960. http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blhockey.htm Montreal Candiens goalie Jacques Plante January 7, 1930, Montreal Canadien great Howie Morenz rings a shot off Clint Benedict's nose and cheekbone, the goalie for cross-town rival Montreal Maroons. This shot would cause Benedict to don a makeshift facemask based on either a football face guard or one worn by that of sparring boxers. Benedict found that the large protective nose piece impaired his vision, so after two games, he gave it up. Benedict' experiment was not recorded as the first goalie mask in history. That moment came nearly thirty years later on November 1, 1959 after New York Ranger Andy Bathgate hit Montreal Canadien goalie Jacques Plante with a shot off the face. Plante would leave the game to get stitched up and later return wearing a mask he had made himself for practices. Plante won the game. This was the birth of the goalie mask.

The first goalie to wear the goalie mask?

Jaques Plante was the first to wear a mask. Plante gets lots of credit for wearing the mask and is probably the main reason that goalies in hockey started using the facial protection on a regular basis. However, other goalies long before Plante wore masks for short periods of time due to facial injuries. For example, Clint Benedict wore a mask way back in 1930 after suffering facial cuts in a game.
