Marc comes from a family of goalies-his father and grandfather were both goaltenders. Marc realizes that he can improve his skills by learning from his grandfather. And his grandfather is happy to share his experience with Marc, and also to teach him about the greatest goaltender of all time, Jacques Plante-the first goalie to wear a face mask in the NHL. Shayne Letain's exciting and lively artwork complements this classic Hockey Heroes story, about standing up for what you believe in."A young goalie learns about the origins of wearing a face mask while playing hockey and gains confidence in his own skills in the process ... The illustrations are colourful and action-packed. A brief biography describes Plante's illustrious career. A good choice for hockey fans." -School Library Journal
