Maurice Richard is one of the most beloved figures in Montreal history -- a hockey legend and a role model for the ages. On Saturday evening, thieves broke into a Laval business and stole a gold, silver and a bronze statuette of him, three altogether, and all bearing his signature. The statuettes have become increasingly valuable since The Rocket's death 10 years ago. Michel Lemyre is president of Canada Billiard and Bowling from where the statuettes were stolen.
