Fournier Tabbed As ’17 Travis Roy Finalist
Bangor High School’s Derek Fournier is now one step away from being named the 2017 Travis Roy award winner, as it was announced that he had been chosen to be a finalist for the honor.
The Rams senior was initially one of the semi-finalist announced last week, and now finds himself in the running along with Robbie Armitage (Falmouth), Eric Murray (Scarborough), and Jeromey Rancourt (Lewiston).
Fournier was 9-5 on the season with a .918 save percentage and a 1.86 goals against average with the Rams during the 2016-17 season. He helped guide the Rams to the Northern Maine final is Class A. He will try to become the first Bangor player to win since Parker Sanderson took home the honor in 2013. Trevor Delaite was a finalist a year ago, along with Justin Courtney in 2014, Sanderson in 2013, and Chris Howat in 2012. It is the seventh time a Ram has been named a finalist.
The award winner will be announced on March 26th.
