Most of the men in the Gary Doak group are enforcers, or at least very physical defenders who can protect the more skilled (read: everyone) players around them. Young’s ISS bio still rings true: He is a good, steady defenseman. Reliable in his own end, makes every effort to be in good position in the defensive zone. Contains his checks down low and can be trusted with the simple pass. Good skater. NHL potential: 4-5D. He is a player that will need some time to develop.
He is unlikely to be a factor in the NHL this season.
