Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Warren Young
Warren Young was a collegiate star with the Michigan Tech Huskies when he was drafted 59th overall by California in 1976. He finished his college career and moved on to start his professional hockey career with the Oklahoma City Stars of the CHL in 1979.

He led the EHL with 53 goals in 1980 and was named to the second all-star team. Young signed as a free agent with the Minnesota in 1981 and played one game for the North Stars that year while spending the majority of his time with Nashville of the CHL.

Young was named to the CHL second all-star team in 1983 and made an appearance in four games with the North Stars that year but did not figure in the future plans of the team. He signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the summer of 1983 but only saw action in 15 NHL games that year while spending most of his time in the minors.

In 1984-85, Warren Young became the talk of the league by scoring 40 goals in his first full NHL season. He was named to the NHL ll-rookie team at years end and his success caused more than one NHL squad to pay more attention to the scouting of collegiate players in the future.

Young was again a free agent at the end of the 1984-85 season. He signed a large contract with the Detroit Red Wings prior to the 1985-86 campaign but was able to produce just over half the totals he had posted the previous season. At year's end he was dealt back to the Penguins for cash and was out of the NHL entirely in just two years, playing a total of 57 games with Pittsburgh and scoring eight goals over those final two seasons.
