Best Answer

Andy Brown was the last mask-less goaltender in the WHA and the NHL. Gump Worsley wore a mask for the last six games of the 1973-74 season but Brown technically was the last in a 6-3 loss to the Atlanta Flames on April 7th 1974.

He played until the 1976-77 season with the Racers and continued to play bare faced.

Joe Daley also played in the WHA without a mask but did eventually wear one near the end of his carear.

Some say Gump Worsley of Minnisota NorthStars in 1974. However, he started wearing his mask that year. Andy Brown of the Penguins did not wear a mask the entire 1974 season.
