Scott Young was drafted 11th overall in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft by the Hartford Whalers and joined the team almost two years later, after playing with the United States National Team and participating in the 1988 Winter Olympics.

An international hockey veteran, Young represented the United States on several front including; the World Junior championships (1985-1987), the World Championships (1987 and 1994), the Winter Olympics (1988, 1992 and 2002), and the World Cup (1996).

A quick skater who developed into an excellent forechecker with a hard, accurate shot. Starring as a defenceman at Boston University, Young earned Hockey East First Team All-Star honours in 1986 and had previously earned First Team All-Star honours at the 1987 World Junior Hockey Championships.

Young was traded by the Whalers to the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1990 and was a member of the Penguins 1991 Stanley Cup team. He won his second Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche in 1996 after he was acquired by the Quebec/Colorado franchise in March of 1992.

After five seasons in the Quebec/Colorado organization, Young joined the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in 1997-98 before signing as a free agent with the St. Louis Blues in the summer of 1998. The Clinton, MA native spent four seasons in St. Louis before signing as a free agent with the Dallas Stars in 2002 and played in his 1,000th NHL game during the 2002-03 season.

Following a lock out year in 2004-05, Young returned to the Blues in the summer of 2005. The Blues finished last in the league that season, however Young led the club with 49 points in 79 games. Following his strong season in St. Louis, Young called it a career after competing in 1181 NHL Games and registering 757 points.

Aside from his international experience with USA Hockey, Young spent time overseas with stops in Italy and Germany.
