Boston Bruins’ GM Don Sweeney confirmed Zane McIntyre will leave the University of North Dakota.

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman first hinted McIntyre may leave school last week.

McIntyre, who was this year’s Mike Richter Award winner as the top NCAA goalie, had a 29-10-3 record this season to go along with 2.05 G.A.A. and a .929 save percentage.

The 22-year-old was also finalist for the Hobey Baker award this season.

McIntyre was the Bruins sixth-round selection (165th overall) at the 2010 NHL Draft.
