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 was the last NHL goalie to play without a mask?

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.

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.
