GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota junior goaltender Zane McIntyre is signing with the NHL’s Boston Bruins and will forgo his senior season.

The Bruins and UND say McIntyre has agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract.

The 6-foot-2, 206-pound native of Thief River Falls, Minnesota, was drafted by Boston in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, 165th overall.

McIntyre last season won the Mike Richter Award as the best goalie in college hockey and was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, given to the top player in the country.

He led UND to the NCAA Frozen Four in Boston, where the team lost in the semifinals. He had 29 victories during the season, tops in the nation and second-most in UND single-season history.
