defenseman they are honouring the oalie who has continued influence over the ame he loved so much In the history of the NHL there have been very few players that are as uniue as Jacues Plante In this biography Todd Denault explores the very essence that is the legendary oaltender In this account of the Ethical Responsiveness and the Politics of Difference goaler s life called Jacues Plante the Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey Todd Denault follows the life of this legend from as a child living in poverty in u bec up to his death at age 57 in SwitzerlandDuring his 20 year stand in the NHL Plante played for the Montreal Canadians the Toronto Maple Leafs the St Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins He also won 6 Stanley Cups including 5 consecutive with the Montreal Canadians This still stands as an NHL record But the reason the Plante is such a memorableoalie is not because he won 5 straight cups or because he was the best The scarecrow goalie in the league back in the day but it is because of the ways that he changed theame Plante is considered the inventor of the idea of stopping pucks behind his net He said that he started doing this because it was a necessity to win Our four defensemen had flaws one couldn t skate backwards one couldn t turn to his left one couldn t turn to his right and one couldn t pass the puck accurately to our blue line Somebody had to clear those pucks so I started doing it myself 26 These are the words of the oaltender that at the time played for the Montreal Royals The fact that he was one of the best oalies in the junior leagues even with such poor defensemen shows Plante s After the End great skill for theame But the biggest way that Plante changed the The Doll and Her Friends (1893) game is how he was the firstoaltender to wear a mask Back in the day it was considered weak for a Septiņi goalie to protect his face now it is considered crazy not to Iuess that he was just ahead of his time as Plante made his voice be heard that all Nightbane World Book One goalies should be reuired to wear masks Plante stated that masks should be mandatory for alloalies blaming the lack of all The All New Jonah Twist goalies on the absence of facial protection 130 Jacues s ideas were not crazy but a little ahead of his time but in the next couple of decades he wouldet his wish This book was definitely a ood read for any sports fan that is interested in hockey But I would not suggest it to anyone who is not interested in this subject especially because of the writing style Todd Denault s writing style is not one for the literature purest His writing can often be dull and full of clich s But as a whole I as a hockey fan would rate this book as a four out of five but if I were "not I would ive it a two out of five A well researched and well written story about one " I would Legon Ascension (Legon Series give it a two out of five A well researched and well written story about one hockey sreatest innovators He was a uniue individual and sometimes misunderstood by his managers and teammates A true student of the ame he always wanted to make it better His book Goaltending is a must read for anyone pondering the uarding of the 4 x 6 net I first knew of Jacues Plante through Canada s Heritage Minutes those televised history segments honouring famous Canadians before I had even watched a hockey The Two of Swords game We re all familiar with shot from Andy Bathgate now the one that allowed Plante to don a mask and change the face of theame This was a very enjoyable read I m not a Habs fan myself but I do appreciate the history behind the oldest franchise especially all the reats they ve had holding their forts during their lucrative years Todd Denault charts Plante s life from his humble beginnings in small town uebec instilling in him a sense of pride and frugality that lasted in small town uebec instilling in him a sense of pride and frugality that lasted his years as a oaltending legend An eccentric example of this was Plante being an avid knitter making his own toues which he seemingly wore as a statement piece because no one else did it Teammates also remembered him as being a reclusive man keeping to himself during long road trips between ABCs of Baseball games Even though he is first and foremost known with the Canadiens jersey he also played for the Rangers Blues Leafs recording his all time best SV% Bruins and Oilers WHA With seven Vezinas six Stanley Cups and one Hart Trophy it s hard not to be impressed with his accomplishments but most importantly were the changes he made to theame playing the puck outside the net to help out his defencemen communicating with his defense assiduously studying other Ēna goalies to refine his own skills and becoming the firstoaltending coach The interviews from his teammates friends and adversaries personalized this book along with some vintage photos included The books credited in the bibliography are Taken By the
