Henri Richard, (1936-) - Autographed 20.3 x 25.4cm (8 x 10in) photo - Nicknamed “Pocket Rocket” in reference to his older brother Maurice Richard’s previously given nickname of “Rocket”. While not as colourful as his famous brother, Henri developed a different style and put together a Hall of Fame career. His entire organized hockey career from Junior through NHL were played in front of Montreal fans progressing from the Montreal Nationals, Montreal Royals, Montreal Jr. Canadiens and Montreal Canadiens. The “Pocket” achieved over 1,000 points and still holds the NHL record for most Stanley Cup rings as a player with 11. Jean Beliveau has 17 in total but only 10 of those were as a player. Richard was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979.
