Goal 400

In Chicago, on December 18, 1954, Richard scores his 400th regular season goal. He is showered with gifts, including a wrought-iron mirror, incorporating the goal-scoring puck, which is hung in the family living room.

On his triumphant return from Chicago where he has scored goal 400, Richard is met at the train station by elated Montreal fans. Two stars from the celebrated Radio-Canada/CBC TV show, La famille Plouffe /The Plouffe Family, Emile Genest (l.) and Pierre Valcour (r.), hoist him to their shoulders.
