They Call Him the Great One - Over the course of the 1944-1945 NHL season, Maurice "Rocket" Richard of the Montreal Canadiens made history, becoming the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals.

However, due to the NHL increasing the length of the season, Hull had 70 games to do what Richard did and thus did not complete the “50 goals in 50 games” achievement....   [tags: Biography] 1353 words

One of America’s Favorite Sports Could be in Danger - ... Slashing could also cause lacerations. The last form of intentional physical contact is fighting. Players routinely pick fights during games, sometimes because they want revenge on an earlier act and other times just to pick up the pace of the game and get the crowd intrigued.
