Gerard Ferdinand Desjardins (born July 22, 1944) is a Canadian former ice hockey goaltender who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks, New York Islanders, and Buffalo Sabres, and also played one season in the World Hockey Association (WHA).[1] Desjardins' career ended after a puck struck his eye in 1977, which led many NHL goalies to switch from fibreglass facemasks toward the cage and helmet style.[2] Many amateur and junior hockey leagues subsequently banned fibreglass masks altogether, and began mandating the helmet/cage combination.
