UND goalie Zane Gothberg has legally changed his last name to his mother’s maiden name of McIntyre.
“My grandmother and my mother have been very influential in my life,” he said. “With the passing of my grandmother and my mother getting re-married, as well as my sister getting married, I’ve made the personal choice to carry on the family name in their honor.”
Zane has made no secret of the impact that they’ve had on his life in the past.
Each season at UND, he has painted a tribute to his grandmother on the back of his helmet: A photo of her with a Diet Coke and the words “Love you Grandma Susie” scrolling on the back.
Zane also told the Herald last season that his mother was his childhood hero.
“Just every day, seeing what she did, working three jobs, trying to help out our family,” he said. “That had a big influence on my life, just seeing what she’d do and how she helped us out.”
