[Report] Zane McIntyre to go pro, sign with Bruins

Recommended Posts

UND starting goalie Zane McIntyre will turn pro.

McIntyre, who won the Mike Richter Award as the nation's best goaltender and set the school record for all-time save percentage, had decided to leave UND, his advisor confirmed to the Herald.

McIntyre made his decision Monday night.

The Thief River Falls product has not started contract negotiations yet, but they are expected to begin soon. The Boston Bruins have his draft rights and McIntyre has said that he plans on signing with Boston. If negotiations fall through with the Bruins, McIntyre also has the option of becoming a free agent.

McIntyre was the most valuable player of UND's Frozen Four team, posting a .929 save percentage and a 2.05 goals-against average. He was named the most outstanding player at the West Regional in Fargo as UND earned its second straight trip to the Frozen Four. McIntyre never lost an NCAA regional game in his career, going 5-0.

McIntyre played in every game last season for UND.

Next season, the starting goaltender job will likely be up for grabs between sophomore Cam Johnson and incoming freshman Matej Tomek. Junior Matt Hrynkiw, who has not played a regular-season game at UND yet, also could figure into the mix.

McIntyre will be the third goaltender to turn pro early under coach Dave Hakstol. Jordan Parise and Aaron Dell also signed after their junior seasons.

Likely replacement for Svedberg. Good signing and gives Malcolm Subban time to develop more.

I'd think it's the other way around. Subban is ahead on the depth chart.

Boston also has Jeremy Smith to compete for Svedberg's job.

McIntyre goes to the bottom.

Apparently there's been rumors that Edmonton is targeting Malcolm Subban. Wouldn't be shocked if there's something in the works there. Would likely be a part of a bigger deal, most likely, if that were to happen. It would also explain why Zane opted to go pro when it appears he's so far down on the depth chart. Without Subban there, Zane moves up a spot or two.
