In the spring of 1960, Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard scored his final goal of his brilliant career. It was his 626th goal, and it occurred in Toronto during the Habs four-game sweep of the Leafs to win their fifth Stanley Cup in a row. When the series ended, the Rocket retired, although he did attend training camp briefly the next season.
When this photo was printed in one of the Toronto papers, I mailed a letter there, with the help of my mother or father of course, asking if it was possible to have a photo, and they indeed sent me a 6×8 black and white glossy which has lived in my old scrapbook ever since.
Players in the photo include the Rocket, Tim Horton #7, Allan Stanley, Henri Richard, Johnny Bower, and Dickie Moore. You can see Moore looking in the net where the puck is.
