Playing career

Plasse played in the National Hockey League from 1970 to 1982 after being the first overall draft pick in the 1968 NHL Amateur Draft. During his NHL career, he played for the St. Louis Blues (1970–71), Montreal Canadiens (1973–74), Kansas City Scouts (1974–75), Pittsburgh Penguins (1975–76), Colorado Rockies (1976–80), and Quebec Nordiques (1981–1982). Despite being a first draft pick, Plasse played just sixty minutes in goal for his first club, St. Louis, playing mainly as a goaltender for their affiliate, the Kansas City Blues of the Central Hockey League. On February 21, 1971, the Oklahoma City Blazers were trailing the Blues 2–1 and decided to pull their goaltender. Plasse scored on the open net and became the first professional goalie in the history of the game to score a goal.[1]

In total, Plasse clocked up 16,760 regular season minutes on ice in 299 games, conceding 1,058 goals with an average of 3.79 goals per game. He earned 2 shutouts, both for Pittsburgh in 1975–76. He played 4 play-off games, conceding 9 goals in 195 minutes at a rate of 2.77 including 1 shutout. Plasse won one Stanley Cup with Montreal in 1973.

Death

Plasse died of a heart attack on December 30, 2006.
