are pleased to select with their second pick of the draft, the greatest goalie of all time:
If not the best goalie of all time, Jacques Plante was certainly the most important - the man who introduced the art of modern goaltending to the NHL and whose influence is seen every night a game is played. - HHoF Bio
His book, The Art of Goaltending, was the first of its kind and solidified his place in the game as not just a great stopper but a man who truly understood hockey and wanted to have an influence on how the game would be played in the future. - HHoF Bio
He was a reflex goalie with a lightning-quick glove-hand. He was also an exceptional skater - the best on the Canadiens, in fact. Such speed allowed him to roam out of his nets to stop errant passes or to fire the puck up-ice to a forward. - Ultimate Hockey
