Joseph-Henri-Maurice "Rocket" Richard was a professional Ice Hockey player, and played for the Montreal Canadiens from 1942 to 1960. The "Rocket" was the most prolific goal-scorer of his era, achieving the fabled feat of 50 goals in 50 games.
Maurice Richard was the first to score 50 goals in one season (the 1944-45 NHL season), doing so in 50 games, and the first to score 500 goals in a career. He finished his career with 544 goals in the regular season, with 82 in the playoffs which included a record six overtime winners (only matched by Joe Sakic), and led the league in goals five times. He also amassed 421 assists for a total of 965 points in 978 games. 50 goals in 50 games continues to be a marker of scoring excellence to this day, and few players have surpassed that mark.
