OPEN EDITION FINE ART GICLEE PRINT FROM THE SPORT COLLECTION
This photograph, taken November 1st 1959, captures the moment when a mask was first worn during a NHL regular season game. The history-making goalie was Montreal Canadiens’ great Jacques Plante, who, after receiving a slapshot in the face by Rangers’ forward Andy Bathgate, retreated to the locker room only to return with his home-made goalie mask.
