In his final year with Brandon, Plante finished the season with 22 goals while adding 118 assists for 140 points, earning him WHL East All-Star Team honours before making his NHL debut with the Leafs the following year.

Even though he spent the majority of the 1984-85 season with the Leafs American Hockey League affiliate in St. Catharines, Plante played in his first two NHL games before returning to St. Catharines the following year.

After the St. Catharines franchise moved to Newmarket in 1986-87, so did Plante as he returned to the Leafs AHL affiliate for a third consecutive season. After only 19 games into the 1986-87 season Plante was headed to the International Hockey League joining the Milwaukee Admirals.

After only one season in Switzerland, Plante headed to Germany where he played in only 12 games before returning to North America and to the IHL's Fort Wayne Komets.

In 1990-91 Plante joined the IHL's Kanas City Blades before joining the Colonial Hockey League's Thunder Bay Hawks for one season in 1991-92.

Plante headed to Great Britain in 1992-93 and spent the next four years in the British Premier/Super League with stops in Norwich-Peterborough, Peterborough, Chelmsford and Humberside while competing in four Benson & Hedges Cups.

During the off-season in 1995 and 1996 Plante was a member of Roller Hockey International with stops in St. Louis and Denver. After his stint in Great Britain, Plante returned to North America and joined the Central Hockey League's Wichita Thunder, a team for which he played two seasons for before stepping away from the game at the end of the 1997-98 season.
