Maurice Richard

Joseph-Henri-Maurice "Rocket" Richard (1921-2000) played for Montreal Canadiens from 1942 to 1960. He was the most exciting player of his generation and a national hero among Quebecois.

His career ended in 1960 after he suffered a severed achilles tendon. His 544 goals in regular-season play was an NHL record on his retirement.

Since 1999, the NHL has awarded the Maurice Richard Trophy annually to the goal-scoring leader during the regular season. Richard himself had led the league in goals five times.
