The Rocket (2hours)

The only thing that matters to 17 year-old Maurice Richard is playing
hockey. Every night, after laboring to earn a living at a Montreal
factory, young Maurice laces up his skates and throws himself onto the
ice; his body and soul into the pursuit of a dream – to become a
national hockey league player. THE ROCKET chronicles the rise of
Maurice Richard from a young man into one of the greatest hockey
players in National Hockey League history. A player fueled more by
passion than by talent and agility alone, Maurice will create scoring
records on the ice and controversy off it. Throughout his career,
Maurice’s exploits resonate in the hearts and souls of Canadians,
making him a hero for generations to come.
