The Kootenay ICE have acquired 2000-born goaltender Duncan McGovern from the Medicine Hat Tigers in exchange for a fifth round draft pick in 2019.
The Winnipeg, Manitoba native played 15 games during the 2016-17 season – seven with the Tigers and eight with the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Dauphin Kings. In those seven games with the Tigers last season McGovern recorded a 4.28 goals against average and a .854 save percentage.
“Duncan is a young goaltender that provides some stability at the goaltender position in our 2000 age group,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager. “We expect him to compete and increase the level of competition for the net in practice and games.”
McGovern was selected in the fifth round (91st overall) of the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft by the Tigers.
