Remembering Rocket Richard’s historic 500th goal

Friday is the 50th anniversary of Canadiens legend Maurice (Rocket) Richard’s historic 500th goal, the first time an NHL player reached this magical plateau. Our friends in the media relations department of the NHL have prepared an information package on the event and what it’s meant to hockey, featuring some of the words of The Gazette’s Red Fisher (who covered No. 500). We reproduce some of that package here, and direct you to this terrific civilization.ca site, as well.
