Tim Young was the Los Angeles Kings' first pick in the 1975 Amateur Draft but was traded to the Minnesota North Stars two months later.
After a successful junior career with the Ottawa 67's, Young made the jump to the NHL, appearing in 63 games with the North Stars in 1975-76. By his second NHL season Young was able to post career highs for goals, assists, and points. He also made an appearance in the 1977 NHL All-Star Game.
On January 15, 1979, Young scored five goals against the New York Rangers during an 8-1 Minnesota romp at MSG. He was traded by the North Stars to the Winnipeg Jets in 1983 and was on the move again the following year, this time to Philadelphia, the last stop in his ten-year NHL career.
