Henri Richard - 1967 Topps

Joseph Henri “Pocket Rocket” Richard (February 29, 1936-) was born on February 29th during a leap year and holds the distinct honor of holding more Stanley Cup Championships (11) than he was old (10) by the end of his career. Henri Richard, Maurice “The Rocket’s” brother, had a similar path to the NHL, but earned his own way and built an incredible career in his own right. Henri played four seasons in the Montreal area for the Canadiens junior clubs racking up both goals and assists coming up as a center. Richard, known as the “Pocket Rocket” as Maurice’s shorter and younger brother, joined the Canadiens in 1955-56, the first year in a stretch of five consecutive championship seasons. Henri was more of a playmaker, far different than his sniper brother, and led the NHL twice in assists in his first eight years. Henri played 20 seasons (1955-1975) in the NHL, all with the Montreal Canadiens, and five seasons alongside his brother, Maurice. He appeared in 12 Stanley Cup Championship series and won eleven NHL title (1956-1960, 1965-1966, 1968-1969, 1971, 1973), more than half of his seasons in the NHL and more than any other player in league history. He quietly built an amazing career with the Habs and became the ninth player in NHL history to score 1,000 career points. He scored the most significant goal of his career in 2:20 minutes into overtime in Game 6 of the 1966 Stanley Cup Finals to clinch the league title over the rival Detroit Red Wings. He was named to the 1957-58 NHL All-Star First Team and played in ten NHL All-Star Games from 1956-1974. Henri Richard finished his career with 358 goals and 688 assists for 1,046 points in 1,256 games. During the Stanley Cup playoffs, he scored 49 goals and 80 assists in 180 games, collecting 11 Stanley Cup Championships. Following his retirement, Henri Richard was presented with the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 1974 for his perseverance and sportsmanship. Henri Richard was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979.
