Randy Feere


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.

“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 of the ICE. “We expect him to compete and increase the level of competition for the net in practice and games.”

The Winnipeg, Man. 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 he  recorded a 4.28 goals-against average and a .854 save percentage.

“The Tigers organization would like to thank Duncan for his dedication and hard work,” said Shaun Clouston, general manager and head coach of the Tigers. We wish him all the best with the ICE.”

McGovern was selected in the fifth round (91st overall) of the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft by the Tigers.
