Pay homage to late, great Hockey Legends, Maurice "Rocket" Richard and Sid Smith with this double sided Vintage 1950's Charm Pendant featuring photos of Maurice Richard and Sid Smith.
Maurice Richard, nicknamed "The Rocket", and known for his piercing eyes, was the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in one season, accomplishing the feat in 50 games in 1944–45, and the first to reach 500 career goals. Richard retired in 1960 as the league's all-time leader in goals with 544. He was just a prolific goal scorer that the Montreal Canadiens retired his number 9, in 1960, and in 1999 donated the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy to the NHL, which is now awarded annually to the league's regular season leading goal-scorer. Owing to his achievements, charisma and dominance, he is widely considered to be one of the greatest Hockey player of all time and one of the most fascinating athletes of the 20th Century.
Sid Smith, played 45 games in two championship seasons for the Maple Leafs, he spent most of the 1948–49 season in the AHL with the Pittsburgh Hornets before he was called back to Toronto. After playing just one regular season game Smith scored a hat-trick in Game 2 on the Stanley Cup finals to help Toronto to a four-games sweep of the Detroit Red Wings. Smith had six consecutive seasons with 20 or more goals, a distinction held by the great Gordie Howe. Smith retired in the 1957–1958 season and later became a player-coach with the Whitby Dunlops, a senior team in the Ontario Hockey Association in 1957. Smith played 601 regular season games scoring 186 goals and 183 assists for 369 points. In 44 play-off games, he scored 17 goals and 10 assists for 27 points.
