When was the last goaltender to wear a mask?

All goalies wear masks (unless there's a distinction here between masks and helmets). In any case, the first goalie to wear a mask was Jacques Plante.

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.

When did hockey goalies start wearing masks?

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.

How long did it take to invent the goalie mask?

The perfection of the goalie mask has been , and is, an ongoing process. In 1930, Ottawa goalie Clint Benedict wore a crude mask to protect a facial injury for five games. Other goalies wore masks for brief periods. However, on Nov.1, 1959, Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens was injured and returned to the ice wearing a mask which he continued to wear in subsequent games. Over the years, all goalies at all levels started to wear facial protection and the masks evolved into the styles you see today and will no doubt continue to change and be improved.

When was the Goalie Mask Invented?

The first goalie mask worn full time was in 1959 by Jacque Plante in the NHL. It was a homemade fiberglass mask similar to the one worn by the character Jason Vorhees in the movie series Friday the 13th. Other masks had been used for a short time on and off before then but were usually masks from other sports, such as the fencing mask Elizabeth Graham used in 1927. In the 1970s the goalie mask changed into a cage/helmet combination which is still used by some lower level goalies (high school, college, recreational, etc) and has evolved into the fiberglass or Kevlar masks with a built in cage used by most goalies today in the NHL.

Did hockey goalies always wear helmets?

No. It wasn't until Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons wore the first mask in 1930 that they began production of masks. Clint wore his leather mask for five games and found that the nosepiece was obstructing his vision. Manufactures began making better masks that didn't interfere with the goalie's ability to see. However, some goalies chose not to wear them. It wasn't until much later that helmets were invented and goalies were required to wear them.

When did NHL goalies start getting designs on their helmets?

They are used as somewhat of a distraction, because when you look at the goalie, the first thing you look to is where you want to the puck to go, but if you concentrate on the mask, then the puck wont go where you want it to. i believe the first 2 goalies to have their masks painted were doug favel who had the "starburst" on his mask and gerry cheevers he had the stiches in his mask in the 70's
