Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons wore one for the one game in the 1920s, but it impeded his vision so he never wore it again. Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens is generally credited as the first to wear the mask regularly.

The first goalie ever to wear a hockey mask was Clint Benedict. He wore it for just one game but he was still the first to wear a hockey mask!Other people say that Jacques Plante wore the first mask but he didn't because it was in the 1950's that he wore a mask and in the 1920's is when Clint Benedict wore a mask!
Yes, Clint Benedict was the first person to wear a mask in an NHL game, after diving on his knees and getting hit in the face by a puck. He purchased it at a local Boston sports store. Although, Jacques Plante is considered the first, it was actually Benedict who was the first one a mask.
i don't know who made it, but i know who first wore a goalie mask. well back then, they didn't like to wear masks< but they got injured tons of times. Jaques Plante, a goalie for the Montreal canadaians got hit in the face and was injured. however he needed to continue the game because his back up wasn't there. Jaque practiced with a small wood mask for months but never used it in a game. He had no choice. He wore it, continued to wear it, and it got around the nhl.
Jaques Plante was the first to wear a mask. Plante gets lots of credit for wearing the mask and is probably the main reason that goalies in hockey started using the facial protection on a regular basis. However, other goalies long before Plante wore masks for short periods of time due to facial injuries. For example, Clint Benedict wore a mask way back in 1930 after suffering facial cuts in a game.
Andy Brown 1974.... Andy Brown 1974.... my name is JR COYOTE....the question should be who was the last goalie to not wear a mask,or to play without a mask,it was andy brown of the penguins,two other facts,i beleive he at one time held the nhl record for most penalty minutes by a goalie,of course until billy smith came along,the other interesting point was there were 2 goalies that started the season without masks that year,but gump worsley finally grew a brain and wore it sometime throught that season
The perfection of the goalie mask has been , and is, an ongoing process. In 1930, Ottawa goalie Clint Benedict wore a crude mask to protect a facial injury for five games. Other goalies wore masks for brief periods. However, on Nov.1, 1959, Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens was injured and returned to the ice wearing a mask which he continued to wear in subsequent games. Over the years, all goalies at all levels started to wear facial protection and the masks evolved into the styles you see today and will no doubt continue to change and be improved.
I think you're referring to the medical face mask. It's quite common for people (in the cities) in Japan and other Asian countries to wear face mask because they think it helps to reduce the pollutants they inhale in the streets. There is no stigma for wearing mask in these countries. If you do this in the US, you'd get stared at all the time. At least in Japan, generally, people also expect you to wear a mask if you have a cold, even kids. They'd stare at you if you keep coughing without a mask. One time, a friend of mine was given a mask by a bystander because he kept coughing.
