Assessments and contributions

Jacques Plante began playing in the NHL in 1952 for the Montreal Canadiens, where he became well known and played the majority of his career. He was a flamboyant, popular player, known for raising his arms high over his head in a "V" victory salute when his team won a key game. He also knitted as a hobby (something which did not ingratiate him to Toe Blake) and had made himself several tuques , which he wore during games in his junior hockey days! “NHL” redirects here. ... The classic NHL shield logo The 1951-52 season was the 35th National Hockey League (NHL) season. ... The Montreal Canadiens (French: ) are a professional ice hockey team based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ... A bright green tuque A tuque (Canadian French: tuque, also spelled toque in English) is a knitted hat, originally usually of wool though now often of synthetic fibers, that is designed to provide warmth in winter. ...


Despite chronic asthma, Plante was one of the greatest goalies of all time, and his contributions to playing the position of goaltender are beyond those of any other individual. Plante was the first goalie to skate behind the net to stop the puck. He also was the first to raise his arm on an icing call to let his defencemen know what was happening. He perfected a stand-up, positional style, cutting down the angles. Finally, he was a pioneer of stickhandling and headmanning the puck; before his time, goaltenders passively stood in the net and simply deflected pucks to defencemen or backchecking forwards. He was the first goaltender to write a how-to book ("Step by Step Hockey Goaltending"). Icing in ice hockey occurs when a player shoots the puck across both the red line and the opposing teams goal line without the puck going into the net. ...


His most enduring contribution to the game, however, occurred as a result of an incident on November 1, 1959. He was hit in the face by a shot from New York Rangers player Andy Bathgate, needing to go to the dressing room for stitches. When he returned, he was wearing the crude home-made goalie mask that he'd been using in practices. His coach, Toe Blake, was livid, but he had no other goalie to call upon and Plante refused to return to the goal unless he kept the mask. Blake agreed on the condition that Plante discard the mask when the cut healed. Only Camille Henry beat him in that game, which the Canadiens won 3-1. In the ensuing days Plante refused to discard the mask, and as the Canadiens continued to win, Blake became less obstinate. The unbeaten streak stretched to 18 games. Plante didn't wear the mask, at Blake's request, against Detroit on March 8, 1960. The Canadiens lost 3-0, and the mask returned for good the next night. Plante subsequently designed his own mask and masks for other goalies. Although Plante was not the first NHL goalie known to wear a facemask (Montreal Maroons goaltender Clint Benedict had done so thirty years before), Plante introduced the mask as everyday equipment, which continues to this day.

Playing career

After a minor league apprenticeship with the senior league Montreal Royals and the Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League, Plante was called up to the Canadiens for good towards the end of the 1954 season, wrestling the starting job away from incumbent Gerry McNeil while recording a spectacular 1.59 goals against average. He went on to record two shutouts in the playoffs (in which the Habs lost the Cup to the Detroit Red Wings) and had the starting job for good the next season. The following year Plante backstopped the Canadiens to the first of an unequalled five straight Stanley Cup championships, as well as the first of five straight Vezina trophies for fewest goals allowed, a mark that has likewise never been equalled. He punctuated the streak with winning the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's MVP in 1962, the last time any goaltender would win it until Dominik Hasek did in 1997. The Montreal Royals were a professional baseball team located in Montreal, Quebec, that existed from 1897-1917 and from 1928-60 as a member of the International League and its progenitor, the original Eastern League. ...

By the 1963 season, however, the pressures of playing in Montreal had worn heavily on the high-strung Plante. He nonetheless led the league in shutouts and missed leading the league in goals against by a whisker, but the high-flying Canadiens fell to third place that year, and management felt the need for a change. He was duly traded in the off-season to the New York Rangers with Phil Goyette and Don Marshall for Dave Balon, Leon Rochefort, Len Ronson and Gump Worsley. Plante played another two lackluster seasons for the hapless Rangers - relegated to backup duty behind longtime minor leaguer Marcel Paille in 1965 - before announcing his retirement at the age of 36. His retirement caught general manager Emile Francis off guard, and Francis was angry. He'd just obtained Ed Giacomin from Providence of the AHL and counted on Plante to guide the rookie during the 1965-66 season. But Plante stood firm. The Rangers got some consolation when they drafted Don Simmons in the intra-league draft. The 1962-63 season was the 46th regular season of the National Hockey League (NHL). ...

During his absence from the NHL, in December 1965, Plante was asked to play goal for the Montreal Junior Canadiens of the major junior Quebec league in an exhibition game against a touring Soviet hockey team. The junior leaguers beat the Soviets 2-1, in a game that Plante considered one of the highlights of his career. The Rouyn-Noranda Huskies are a major junior hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. ...


In September of 1967, however, he was lured back to the NHL by former Canadiens teammate Bert Olmstead, who had been named coach and general manager of the expansion California Seals. Plante signed a training camp tryout contract with the Seals, but his reserve rights still belonged to the Rangers and no reasonable deal for his services could be made. He left the Seals' training camp and returned to his retirement. The 1967-68 NHL season was the 51st regular season of the National Hockey League (NHL). ... “NHL” redirects here. ...

But another chance to play was offered to him by the St. Louis Blues, who had claimed him off the Rangers' roster in the Intra-League Draft on June 8th, 1968.

He played another splendid season in St. Louis, but with up-and-coming goalie Ernie Wakely on the team, the aged Plante was sold to the Toronto Maple Leafs in May, 1970. In his first season with the Leafs he proved he was not past it by leading the league with the third lowest goals against average (1.88) of the entire expansion era (up to the last few seasons) and was named a league Second Team All-Star.

His third season was not as successful, and he was traded again near the end of the 1973 season for his last hurrah to the Boston Bruins for goaltender Ed Johnston and a first round draft choice. He recorded a long-remembered shutout in his Bruins debut against Chicago and remained very effective in eight regular-season games, but was ineffective in two playoff games, and at age 44, Plante's long NHL career was finally over.

WHA career, retirement and death

He joined the rival World Hockey Association in 1973 as general manager of the Quebec Nordiques, but lasted only one season there before being lured out of retirement yet again to play for the WHA team which held his playing rights: the Edmonton Oilers. He played one season for the Oilers before retiring for the third and final time at age 46, after which time he served as a goaltending coach and European scout for the Philadelphia Flyers and later the St Louis Blues.
