It was the injury that Gerry Desjardins received to his eye that precipitated the Harrison/Dryden innovation and the banning of face-flush masks. Desjardins was injured in February of '77, two years before Parent. Dave Dryden began wearing his hybrid mask in the fall of '77, which is coincidentally when the old masks were banned at lower levels of hockey.
