North Dakota goalie Zane Gothberg changes name to Zane McIntyre

North Dakota junior goaltender Zane Gothberg announced Thursday that he has legally changed his surname to his mother’s maiden name of McIntyre.

“My grandmother and my mother have been very influential in my life,” said McIntyre in a news release. “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, a sixth-round draft pick of the Boston Bruins in 2010, went 20-10-3 last season and was a finalist for the NCHC goaltender of the year award after leading the NCHC with a 1.99 GAA and ranking second with a .926 save percentage.
