Overview

Roy Dupuis stars as the first professional hockey player to score 50 goals in one season in director Charles Biname's docudrama tracing the life of Canadian sports legend Maurice "The Rocket" Richard. As a 17-year-old boy, Quebec native Richard labored the day away in a Montreal factory before lacing up his skates and hitting the ice. Richard's dream was to someday play on the national hockey league, and after years of hard work he eventually made that fantasy a reality. But Richard would accomplish much more than simply earning a spot on the biggest league in the country; his passion for the game eventually propelled him to become one of the most beloved players in hockey history. In 1955, when Richard was suspended for deliberately injuring another athlete on the ice, the outrage that erupted would culminate in the notorious riot at the Montreal forum.

    Great story for even a casual hockey fan !

    Reguardless of what team you are a fan of, this movie is a truely great hockey story. The film is cast perfectly. Roy Dupuis is brilliant as Maurice Richard, and spent alot of time with the late, great Canadiens winger, mastering his role. Highly recommended, and gives you the feeling that you were actually there in the locker room, and on the ice with one of the greatest of all time. A+
