Project Issue after Passing Military Grid System into Ipoint

Hi all,

I'm using ArcGIS Server 10.0 sp5 .NET WebADF and NITK toolkit.  I made a simple button to zoom to MGRS coordinates and would like the resulting X & Y values in UTM WGS84 14.  Executing PutCoordsFromMGRS (from the IConversionMGRS class) always returns a Lat/Long for a X,Y value.

When I go to project the value back to UTM WGS84 14N, I get no change....what am I missing?

private void ZoomToMGRSCoordinate(string MGRSValue)
            //We finally get to start the conversion of MGRS to Points

            IServerContext serverContext = null;
            GISServerConnection serverConnection = new GISServerConnection();
            IServerObjectManager serverManager = serverConnection.ServerObjectManager;
            //Get GeometryServer Context
            serverContext = serverManager.CreateServerContext("Geometry",

            ISpatialReferenceFactory3 pSRF = serverContext.CreateObject(
                "esriGeometry.SpatialReferenceEnvironment") as ISpatialReferenceFactory3;

            ISpatialReference utmSpatialReference = pSRF.CreateProjectedCoordinateSystem((int)esriSRProjCSType.esriSRProjCS_WGS1984UTM_14N);
            ISpatialReference ddSpatialReference = pSRF.CreateGeographicCoordinateSystem((int)esriSRGeoCSType.esriSRGeoCS_WGS1984);

            ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.IPoint pnt = new PointClass();

            if (Map.PrimaryMapResource.ToString() == "FSC" || Map.PrimaryMapResource.ToString() == "FSR")
              pnt.SpatialReference = ddSpatialReference;
              IConversionMGRS convertpnt = pnt as IConversionMGRS;
              convertpnt.PutCoordsFromMGRS(MGRSValue, esriMGRSModeEnum.esriMGRSMode_USNG);
              ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.IPoint pnt2 = new PointClass();
              pnt2.SpatialReference = ddSpatialReference;
              pnt2 = convertpnt as IPoint;

              ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Web.Geometry.Point wpn = ESRI.ArcGIS.ADF.Web.DataSources.ArcGISServer.Local.Converter.FromIPoint(pnt2)
              MapZoomer mapZoomer = new MapZoomer(Map, PointZoomFactor);
