The only thing that matters to 17-year-old Maurice Richard is playing hockey. Every night, after labouring to earn a living at a Montreal factory, young Maurice laces his skates and throws himself, body and soul, onto the ice in the pursuit of a dream – to become a professional hockey player.

The Rocket chronicles the rise of Maurice Richard from a young man into one of the greatest hockey players in hockey history. A player fueled by deep passion and talent, Maurice will set scoring records on the ice as well as controversy around it.
