Lewiston's Bossie among 4 Travis Roy Award finalists

...Bossie, whose Blue Devils just wrapped up a third straight Class A state title on Saturday, spoke of even just being named a semifinalist in the week leading up to the championship game.

“It just feels privileged knowing that when you play defense you still get recognized as much as the forwards do,” Bossie said. “I mean, it’s not all about the points. Just getting mentioned as a defenseman is quite an honor.”

The blue-liner also helped out on the offensive end for Lewiston this year, scoring three goals and assisting on 14 others during the regular season. He had another goal and two more assists in the playoffs, including tallying a point in each of the Blue Devils’ three playoff games. ... finalists/

Inaugural Travis Roy Award winner Brian Toussaint proud of hockey past

...But once upon a time Brian Toussaint was also a hockey player — one who shone as brightly as the statue in his closet.

“He was by far the best candidate for the first Travis Roy Award,” current Edward Little High School boys’ hockey coach Norm Gagne said.

In 1996, Toussaint’s senior season at St. Dominic Academy, Gagne was the head coach at rival Waterville High School. He and every other coach in Class A hockey knew giving the award, indicative of the best all-around senior hockey player in Maine, to Toussaint was a no-brainer.
