Rocket And Little Rockette Share A Moment

It wasn’t all scoring, fighting, getting suspended and carrying an entire province on his back. Because Maurice Richard was also a great dad. Here he is with little Suzanne, the fifth of seven kids of Rocket and Mrs. Rocket (Lucille); the others being Hugette, Maurice Jr., Normand, Andre, Paul and Jean.

Suzanne is 51 now..

  1. 5 sons and and none of them laced up and played in the NHL. That’s a bit dissapointing. What a waste of some of the greatest hockey blood of all time. Oh well, you can’t blame them, I guess they just didn’t like the game as much as their dad did.

  2. Gillis, when Maurice Junior played minor hockey, other parents gave him a hard time which is pretty terrible. And Rocket and Lucille thought Normand might become a good player but it didn’t work out that way.

  3. What a great picture of a great man. The Rocket was truly larger than life and bigger than hockey. A legend and a giant. Thanks Dennis.
