Yes. Unlike Baseball you can put any player back in the game. HOWEVER if the goalie is pulled its generally because he is not on top of his game and has let in some stupid or lots of goals. Therefore you usually don't see a goalie being put back in.

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.

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.
