GRAND FORKS, N.D. — University of North Dakota junior goaltender Zane Gothberg has legally changed his last name to McIntyre, his mother's maiden name.

The sixth-round draft pick of the Boston Bruins in 2010 says his remarried mother and his late grandmother were influential in his life, and he wants to honor them.

The Thief River Falls, Minnesota, native went 20-10-3 last season and was a finalist for the National Collegiate Hockey Conference's Goaltender of the Year award.
