    Steve Young started his junior hockey journey with the For Saskatchewan Traders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League in 1986-87.  He made his Western Hockey League debut that same season with the Calgary Wranglers.  When the Wranglers moved to Lethbridge to become the Hurricanes in 1987-88, Young etched his name in the record books, scoring the first goal in Hurricanes history.  During that season he was traded to the New Westminster Bruins.  Before the 1988-89 season started, Young was on the move again, this time dealt to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

    He was selected by the New York Islanders in the 5th round of the 1989 National Hockey League Draft.  Young returned to the WHL for his 20-year old season, he started in Moose Jaw, was traded to the Prince Albert Raiders, was there for 10 games, then moved to the Portland Winterhawks.  After his time in junior, Young went on to play four seasons with the University of Alberta Golden Bears, winning Canada West 3 times and the national championship in 1992.

    After hockey he has built a very successful business career including significant stops with the Edmonton Police force, Alberta politics and post secondary education including NAIT, MacEwan and the University of Alberta. Steve is currently a special project manager with AIMCO, the Alberta Investment Management Corporation.
