Henri "Pocket Rocket" Richard

Rocket Richard's younger brother Henri was waterbug-quick but, at 5-7 and 160 pounds, three inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter than his famous sibling, hence his nickname. The Hall of Fame center's name graces the Stanley Cup a record 11 times as a player. He spent his entire 20-season career with the Canadiens.
