Plante, (Joseph) Jacques (Omer)
born Jan. 17, 1929, Shawinigan Falls, Que., Can.
died Feb. 26, 1986, Geneva, Switz.

Canadian ice-hockey player.

A goalie, he recorded a shutout in his first NHL game. He was an integral member of the powerful Montreal Canadiens team that won a record five successive Stanley Cups (1956–60). He was the first goalie to wear a protective face mask (1959). Honoured throughout his 18-year NHL career, he was one of the most successful of all NHL goaltenders.
