    Maurice "The Rocket" Richard is one of the best goal scorers in the history of the game.

    In 1944-45, Richard set the standard when he became the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in a season, which back then was 50 games long.

    To tell you how incredible Richard's accomplishment was, he finished this season with 18 more goals than the next highest goal scorer in the league and set a standard for all hockey players that followed.
