October 26, 2023 – Canadian Premier League (CPL)Forge FC News Release

The Canadian Premier League (CPL) announced Thursday night that Triston Henry has been awarded the 2023 Golden Glove Award. The award honours the best goalkeeper during the 2023 CPL regular season. This is the second time Henry has won the award, the first being in 2020. Henry was one of three nominees alongside Cavalry FC’s Marco Carducci and Valour FC’s Rayane Yesli

Henry, 30, dominated his fifth season for the club recording 57 saves while also leading the league in clean sheets (10) fortifying Forge FC’s defence. The Scarborough, Ontario native played in 27 of 28 regular season matches for Forge, totalling 2,400 minutes played. Henry also led the league in Goalkeeper selections to the Gatorade CPL Team of the Week, being selected five times and was the only netminder to be awarded Allstate Goalkeeper of the Month honours twice, in May and in July. This was Henry’s fourth nomination for Golden Glove, after earning nods in 2019, 2020 and 2021, winning the award twice (2020 & 2023).

The winner was decided through voting by CPL club technical leadership and select media members representing local and national outlets who consistently covered the 2023 CPL regular season. The winner was revealed at an in-person ceremony in Hamilton, Ontario, on Thursday, October 26 as part of the CPL Final weekend festivities.

As the Golden Glove Award winner, Triston Henry was awarded a unique piece of Inuit soapstone art, conceived by artist Kellipalik Etidloie. The Canadian Inuit Dog statue is awarded annually to the CPL goalkeeper voted best at his position because the Canadian Inuit Dog and goalkeepers are, similarly, protectors who play vital roles in guarding their communities.
