North Dakota goaltender Zane McIntyre will forgo his final season of eligibility to sign a NHL entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins.
McIntyre, a native of Grand Forks, ND who grew up in nearby Thief River Falls, Minn., accomplished his childhood dream of playing at North Dakota.
A sixth round selection by the Bruins in the 2010 NHL Draft, McIntyre won the 2015 Mike Richter Award as college hockey's best goaltender. He led UND to the NCAA Frozen Four as a sophomore and junior.
In his final season with North Dakota, McIntyre went 29-10-3 with a 2.05 goals against average and .929 save percentage. He could have held out and become an unrestricted free agent, but signed with the Bruins, as expected.
