By 1946, The Rocket is hero to thousands of young fans. They fill scrapbooks with clippings about him cut from magazines and newspapers, write him poems, and besiege him for his autograph. The Rocket, who as a boy had been refused a signature by one of his own hockey heroes, never turns down a request.
