Prince Albert, Sask. – The Prince Albert Raiders have acquired the Western Hockey League playing rights of 2000-born goaltender Duncan McGovern from the Winnipeg ICE in exchange for an eighth-round selection in the 2022 WHL Bantam Draft.

McGovern, who hails from Winnipeg, Man., was recently assigned to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s (MJHL) Dauphin Kings. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound goaltender will remain with Dauphin.

Since joining the Kings, McGovern has made two appearances. In those games, he has a win and a shootout loss with a 2.88 goals-against average and a .893 save percentage.

McGovern was a fifth-round pick of the Medicine Hat Tigers in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft. The ICE traded for the right-catching goaltender on Oct. 23, 2017. Last season, McGovern posted a 4.77 GAA and a .868 SV% with a 6-16-2-0 record.

In his WHL career, McGovern has a 22-33-5-0 record in 66 appearances. He has a career 3.85 GAA and a 0.878 SV%.

Prior to the 2018-19 season, McGovern attended the Winnipeg Jets’ training camp.
