University of North Dakota goalie and Mike Richter Award winner Zane McIntyre will forgo his final season at UND and turn pro, it was announced Tuesday, May 12th.

According to InForum, McIntyre hasn't started contract negotiations yet, but the Boston Bruins have his draft rights. If a deal can't be reached with Boston, McIntyre would become a free agent.

McIntyre is UND's all-time leader in save percentage (.924) and is tied for third all-time in goals-against-average (2.15), according to UNDSports.com.

With McIntyre's departure, UND will look towards sophomore Cam Johnson and freshman Matej Tomek to take over the starting goalie spot next season, according to InForum.
