Saint Dominic Academy goaltender Grant Carrier was named Friday as one of the four finalists for the Travis Roy Award, presented each year to Maine's outstanding senior Class A hockey player.
Carrier is joined as a finalist by Cameron McLain of Cheverus, Parker Sanderson of Bangor and Nick Bagley of Scarborough. McLain and Sanderson are forwards. Bagley is a defenseman.
The award will be presented Sunday, March 24 at the Ramada Inn in Lewiston.
Finalists were selected from the previously announced list of eight semifinalists, a group that included Lewiston goalie Evan Bourassa.
Although he shared goaltending duties with classmate Austin Christopher for much of his career, Carrier shared St. Dom's most valuable player honors as a sophomore and won them outright as a senior. He also was named second-team all-state as a junior and first-team this season.
Carrier stopped 93 percent of the shots he faced this winter and registered three shutouts. One of those, a 1-0 stifling of Scarborough, was the Red Storm's only defeat of the regular season.
Non-hockey activities are weighed as part of the Roy award criteria, and Carrier shone in those departments, as well. He also played soccer, golf and lacrosse and is a member of the Spanish Club and Varsity Club. His grade-point average is 4.15.
Sanderson racked up 25 goals and 26 assists for Bangor despite sitting out four games with a leg injury. The Rams beat Carrier's Saints 3-2 in double overtime in the Eastern Class A semifinals before falling 5-1 to Lewiston in the regional title game.
McLain scored 21 goals and logged 19 assists, leading Western Class A Tier I in scoring during the regular season.
Bagley led the state in scoring among defensemen while taking only two penalties all season.
Along with Bourassa, other semifinalists were Dallas Clark of Cony, Hugh Grygiel of state champion Falmouth and Spence Cowand of Gorham.
