626 by 9 is a goal-by-goal chronicle in pictures, stats, and stories celebrating the remarkable career of Maurice "The Rocket" Richard. For 18 seasons, the Montreal Canadien in sweater number 9 dominated the sport, chalking up 626 career goals. The book is amply illustrated with pictures of The Rocket in action, the sticks he used to score the milestones, and the awards and trophies he won for setting record after scoring record. Other images of items and events in Richard’s life hint at how important he was not only to hockey but also to Canada’s history and sense of itself.
