OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

#halloween2021 Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins
