Throw Back Thrusday: Jacques Plante
Tom submitted another piece featuring an old school goalie drawing of Jacques Plante as a Toronto Maple Leaf. Jacques Plante in a Maple Leaf jersey isn't the 1st image that comes to mind when I think of Jacques Plante, makes this piece more interesting. Plante is best remembered playing for Montreal and for being the 1st goaltender to wear a mask, play the puck behind the net and several other innovations for the goaltending position, in his later years of his playing days he moved around to quite a few other teams, the Rangers, Blues, Bruins then to his final NHL team the Maple Leafs, he then played for the Oilers shortly (then in the WHA) before finally retiring. so here is Toms artwork of Jacques Plante playing for his final NHL team.
