LEWISTON — It was a career to be envied.

Three Class A All-State selections.

Three state titles.

A total of 141 points over four varsity seasons.

Any Maine high school hockey player would loved to have been in Trevor Fleurent’s skates.

Fleurent added the final piece to his Biddeford High resume Sunday by winning the prestigious Travis Roy Award at the annual Class A hockey coaches banquet.

Fleurent, who last week led the Tigers to their third state championship in four seasons, becomes the 15th winner of the Roy award, which is given to the top senior high school hockey player in Maine.

“It’s an honor,” said Fleurent, one of three hockey-playing sons of Steve and Lynn Fleurent. “There are so many great hockey players in Maine.

“To be honored with them is special.”

Fleurent led the state in scoring through the regular season and playoffs with 33 goals and 27 assists.

He scored twice in the 3-0 regional championship win over Thornton Academy, then scored once in the Tigers’ 3-0 win over Waterville for the state title.

“On our team,” said Biddeford Coach Rich Reissfelder, “he makes everybody better. He’s the hardest worker in practice. Always wants to take extra shots and extra reps. He’s just a true leader.”

The hockey genes run freely in Fleurent’s family.

His father Steve was a member of Biddeford’s Class B state championship team of 1977.

Trevor’s older brother Tyler, now playing for the University of New England, played on the Tigers’ Class A title team in 2007.

Younger brother Brady, a freshman, was Biddeford’s second-leading scorer (16-24-40) and usually played left wing on Trevor’s line.

“Four years ago, right in this room,” said Steve Fleurent, “I looked and said, ‘That could be you someday, Trevor.’ Sure enough, here it is, four years later. And it happened.”

Fleurent plans to play junior hockey next year and hopes to move on to college soon after.

He is the third player from Biddeford to be named a Travis Roy Award winner, following Casey LaFlamme (1998) and Tony Dube (2008).

“I couldn’t have done this,” said Fleurent, citing Biddeford’s hockey tradition, “without those guys.”

Three coaches – Joe Robinson (South Portland, West Tier I), Jaime Belleau (Lewiston, East), and Keith St. Cyr (Noble, West Tier III) were honored with the Bob Boucher Memorial Award.

Robinson, who is a repeat Boucher winner, said he appreciated being recognized once more.

“Your peers vote on you,” said Robinson, whose Red Riots reached the Western semifinals this season.

“It means a lot to me. You put in a lot of hours and a lot of work. So it’s (heartening) when other people notice. That you’re doing good things (with kids).”
