He played in the National Hockey League between 1962 and 1979 with the New York Rangers, Chicago Black Hawks, Buffalo Sabres, and Edmonton Oilers, and in the World Hockey Association between 1974 and 1979 with the Chicago Cougars and Edmonton Oilers. Dryden has the distinction of creating (as well as being the first goaltender to employ) the modern day goaltending mask consisting of a fiberglass mask with a cage.

Career
Born in Hamilton, Ontario, the son of Murray and Margaret Dryden, Dryden played in the National Hockey League (NHL) and World Hockey Association (WHA) from 1962 to 1979, playing for the New York Rangers, Buffalo Sabres, Chicago Black Hawks, Chicago Cougars, and Edmonton Oilers. On March 20, 1971, in a game between his Sabres and the Montreal Canadiens, Dryden faced his brother Ken, the first time in the history of the NHL that brothers opposed each other as goalies.
Dryden's best years came in the WHA, while playing for the Oilers. When the Oilers joined the NHL for the 1979–80 NHL season, Dryden had set the record for most games played (197) and most wins (94) by any goaltender while a WHA Oiler. He was the goalie against whom Wayne Gretzky scored his first professional goal. In 1979, he won the Ben Hatskin Trophy as the WHA's top goaltender, and the Gordie Howe Trophy as league MVP. In 1977, Dryden designed the first mask-cage combination goalie mask; maskmaker Greg Harrison transferred his design drawings into a final product which Dryden wore for the Oilers. The mask is on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The mask-cage combination goalie mask is now the norm in modern hockey.
Personal life
Dave Dryden was the chair person of Sleeping Children Around the World charity (founded by his father) which provides bed kits to children in developing countries.
