University of North Dakota junior goaltender Zane Gothberg now is Zane McIntyre.
McIntyre, a sixth-round draft pick of the Boston Bruins in 2010, announced Thursday that he has legally changed his last name to honor two very important women in his life.
“My grandmother and my mother have been very influential in my life,” McIntyre said in a news release on the school’s website. “With the passing of my grandmother and my mother getting re-married, as well as my sister getting married, I’ve made the personal choice to carry on the family name in their honor.”
McIntyre led the National Collegiate Hockey Conference with a 1.99 goals-against-average and ranked second with a .926 save percentage en route to being named a finalist for the NCHC goaltender of the year award. The 22-year-old went 20-10-13 last season for UND.
