B. Emile Francis
If you answered Emile Francis you are correct! During the 1947/48 season, Chicago netminder Emile Francis changed the goaltending position forever when he wore a modified version of a first basemans glove in a game against the Detroit Red Wings. Detroit coach Jack Adams protested the use of the glove but NHL President Clarence Campbell disagreed, evolutionizing the position of goaltender. (Quick Fact courtesy of hockeysiteincanada.com)
