Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Michel Plasse was selected by the Canadiens as the first-overall pick in the 1968 NHL Entry Draft. His rights were sold to St. Louis on Dec. 11, 1970, and he would go on to make his debut with the Blues on Mar. 30, 1971 against the L.A. Kings. The Blues sold his rights back to the Montreal organization on Aug. 23, 1971. Backing up Ken Dryden for the Canadiens 1972-73 campaign, he took part in 17 games and finished by winning the Stanley Cup with the team that season. The following year, he spilt time in nets with Wayne Thomas and Michel Larocque, playing only 15 games. He was picked up by the Kansas City Scouts as part of the NHL Expansion Draft on Jun. 12, 1974. Plasse also played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Colorado Rockies and Quebec Nordiques before announcing his retirement in 1981-82.

Plasse holds the distinction for having been the first professional hockey goaltender to score a goal, achieving the feat on Feb. 21, 1971 against the Oklahoma City Blazers while he was a member of the Central Hockey League’s Kansas City Blues.
