The extraordinary story of Maurice “The Rocket” Richard, whose tireless fight on and off the ice ignited – and forever changed – a generation. As a young boy from blue collar Québec, Richard had a dream to play in the National Hockey League. Beneath his soft-spoken, working class exterior burned a passion that transformed this young factory working into “The Rocket.” In the 1950s pre-helmet days of hockey, facing constant discrimination, The Rocket played with a finesse, speed, and fire that defied all odds and made him a legend.
