This is a story about a great Canadian hockey player who had the courage to stand up for himself in a difficult situation. Jacques Plante was the first NHL goalie to wear a mask during a hockey game. Everyone thought wearing the mask would impede his vision, but Jacques Plante proved them all wrong and changed the game of hockey forever. This is a great story for children ages 6 to 8 years old. It will inspire and challenge the young reader to think about what courage is, how innovation happens and what it means to set trends rather than follow them.
