The Canadiens Hall of Fame unveiled a wax statue of Maurice “the Rocket” Richard, gifted by the famous Grevin museum. In attendance at the ceremony were Geoff Molson, Guy Lafleur, Rejean Houle, Marc Bergevin and members of the Richard family.
“I thought the statue was very well done,” offered Geoff Molson, the owner of the Canadiens. “Especially the eyes. You could really see the passion in those eyes.”
Starting tomorrow, visitors to the Canadiens Hall of Fame can experience the Rocket’s passion first-hand by making a stop at the section dedicated to the Habs’ number 9. The latest addition to the exhibit is a fitting tribute to the franchise’s all-time leading goal scorer, one of the great players in hockey history.
