Henri Richard
Dubbed the “Pocket Rocket” due to being the younger (and shorter) brother of Maurice ‘Rocket” RichardHenri Richard may have been in the shadow of his more famous brother, but he was one gifted hockey player in his own right.

Henri’s style of play was very different from Maurice, as he was more of a playmaker and would twice lead the NHL in assists. The Centre was named to Post Season All Star teams four times, but most impressive his record eleven Stanley Cups as a player; a feat that is unlikely ever to be matched. We bet that Maurice (and every other man who played in the NHL) wished he had as many rings!
