As a young boy from blue collar Quebec, Maurice Richard had a dream to play in the National Hockey League. Beneath his soft spoken, working-class exterior burned a tenacity and passion that transformed this young factory worker into "The Rocket." In the 1950s pre-helmet days of hockey, The Rocket played with a finesse, speed and conviction that made him a legend. A man of the people, denied equal rights in a culturally-divided nation and ridiculed by critics as "too frail to play hockey," Maurice Richard defied all odds to become the first player to ever score 50 goals in 50 games. His tireless fight on and off the ice ignited and forever changed a generation.
