Playing careerEdit

McIntyre came to the University of North Dakota after playing junior hockey in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Fargo Force where he was named the 2011–12 USHL Goaltender of the Year. McIntyre committed to play collegiate hockey with NCAA Division I University of North Dakota men's ice hockey team which competes in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) conference.

After his junior season with North Dakota in 2014–15 season, McIntyre turned pro in agreeing to a two-year entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins on June 23, 2015.[3]

Partly due to Bruins primary goaltender Tuukka Rask sustaining a groin injury at the season's start,[4] on October 25, 2016, McIntyre made his NHL debut in a 5–0 loss to the Minnesota Wild.[5][6][7] The following night, on October 26, he was the starting goaltender for the Bruins in a 5–2 loss to the New York Rangers.[8] On July 14, 2017, during the off-season McIntyre, along with fellow Providence Bruins goaltender Malcolm Subban, were each re-signed by the Boston Bruins for two years, at $650,000 per year.[9]

After spending his first four professional seasons within the Bruins organization, McIntyre left as a free agent to sign a one-year, two-way contract with the Vancouver Canucks on July 1, 2019.[10]
