College Hockey:
Zatkoff Inks With Kings

— Goaltender Jeff Zatkoff will forgo his final season at Miami after agreeing to terms on a contract with the Los Angeles Kings, the NHL team announced.

The Kings’ third-round draft pick (No. 74 overall) in 2006, Zatkoff led the CCHA in goals against average (1.72) and save percentage (.933) this season.

Zatkoff helped the RedHawks to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament this season, but Miami was eliminated by Boston College in the Northeast Regional final.

On Wednesday, Miami announced that it had signed goaltender Cody Reichard from the NAHL’s Fairbanks Ice Dogs to a National Letter of Intent.

The RedHawks also lost goaltender Charlie Effinger to graduation. Jon Whitacre, who has played in one game for Miami, will be a junior in the fall.
