Sculpture of an All-Time Great

This is a larger-than-life size sculpture of Maurice (Rocket) Richard, the legendary hockey player. I haven't seen this statue for years but happened to walk past it recently at the entrance to Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau. I have always liked this sculpture because it is so full of action. You can almost feel him skating down the ice ready to shoot a goal. Isn't it great?

Hm-m-m...I wonder if that's the same one I saw at les Ailles (sp?) in Montreal some years ago?
