Elizabeth Graham - Queens University

Elizabeth Graham was the 1st goaltender to wear a mask in a Ice Hockey game on February 7, 1927.

The Montreal Daily Star reported : "The Queen's goaler gave the fans a surprise when she stepped into the nets and then donned a fencing mask. It was safety-first with her and even at that she can't be blamed for her precautionary methods."

She wore the fencing mask to protect her teeth. Her father had already spent so much to send her to university that she didn't want to add to his burden by racking up dental bills
