Two Arlington residents have won the Boston Bruins' John Carlton memorial trophies.
Molly Griffin, a forward at Buckingham Browne & Nichols, and Anthony Messuri, a forward at Arlington High, won awards. Named after the late Bruins scout and administrator, they are given to a pair of high school seniors “who combine exceptional hockey skills with academic excellence.”
Griffin, who is second on BB&N’s all-time scoring list (145 points), helped her team to a program-best 22 wins this season.
Messuri, captain of the unbeaten Spy Ponders, the state co-champ this year and overall champ in 2017, is the first male public school student to win the award since 1999. The Globe All-Scholastic produced 112 points in his high school career.
Both are honor roll students who plan to attend Northeastern. BostonGlobe.com first reported this information.
