Bruins take goalie in sixth
|06.26.10 at 3:58 pm ET|
The Bruins broke up their string of five forwards in a row by drafting goaltender Zane Gothberg with the 165th overall pick, their allotted sixth-round selection. Gothberg is committed to the University of North Dakota after an upcoming stint with the USHL’s Fargo Force. The Bruins first three picks were centers, followed by a pair of left wings.
Gothberg had a 1.84 goals against average in his senior year at Thief River Falls high school in Minnesota with a 9.22 save percentage. The 6-foot-1, 177-pounder also played for the United States under-18 team.
Three shutouts as a senior helped earn the 18-year-old Gothberg the Frank Brimsek award, which is given to the state of Minnesota’s top senior goalie each year.
