CJ Young Career

Playing career

Young played four seasons of college hockey with the Crimson men's hockey program from 1986 to 1990 while attending Harvard. In 34 and 28 games respectively, he scored 29 points per season in his freshman and sophomore seasons. Young, who appeared on his first international appearance as a sophomore, also attended the 1988 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Moscow. In seven games for the sixth-place Americans, he scored two goals and contributed to an assist.

Young formed what became known as the "line of fire" during Harvard's offensive assaults in 1988-1989. Young was one of the team's top goal scorers in all competitions with 33 goals, and he was selected to the East Coast Athletic Conference (ECAC)'s second all-star team. Young set a new NCAA record of a hat trick by scoring three goals in 49 seconds on December 12, 1988 – all shorthanded. The Crimson won the national championship final, 4–3 in overtime, beating the Minnesota Golden Gophers for their first hockey championship and the first national team championship in the school's history.

Young was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 1989 NHL Supplemental Draft, but he returned to Harvard for his senior year, where he was named the team's captain. He played 49 points in 28 games and was named to the ECAC's first all-star team. Young was also named the Ivy League player of the year and selected to his third All-Ivy squad. He graduated in 2005 as one of the school's all-time leaders in goals (84) and points (162) and was elected to the Harvard Varsity Club Hall of Fame.

Young joined the Calgary Flames group as a free agent after struggling to sign a deal with the Devils. For the 1990-91 season, the Flames recalled him to their International Hockey League (IHL) affiliate, the Salt Lake Golden Eagles, where he scored 31 goals and 67 points in 80 games. He wasÉcole as the year's best-born rookie. Young spent the majority of the 1991–92 season with the United States National Team as it travelled on a barnstorming tour in preparation of the 1992 Winter Olympics; Young had 17 goals and 17 assists in 49 games with the team. In eight games, he scored one goal and three assists, for the American team that finished fourth place in 1992 Olympic hockey tournament. Young Rejoined the Golden Eagles for the remainder of the season, where he averaged four points in nine games.

Young was initially unable to commit to a new deal before the 1992–93 NHL season, and was ruled out of the Flames' training camp. He missed the first part of the season before coming to terms with the team on a one-year contract, and in a 4–3 loss to the New York Islanders on November 21, 1992, he made his NHL debut as a replacement for injured forward Joe Nieuwendyk. In a 5–3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on December 31, he scored his first two NHL goals. Head coach Dave King praised his skating skills and defensive play, but the Flames cut Young to the Boston Bruins on February 1, 1993 in exchange for Brent Ashton. Young scored a two-goal effort in his fifth game with the Bruins, defeating Montreal. He played for 13 NHL games with the Providence Bruins during the season, but he appeared in 43 NHL games between Calgary and Boston, scoring 7 goals and 14 points.

Young, a free agent prior to the 1993-94 season, opted to join the expansion Florida Panthers and turned down a good bid from the Bruins because he felt he had a great opportunity to play with the Panthers. Nonetheless, his talks with Florida general manager Bob Clarke got stalemate over whether the team would keep him to the American National Team for the 1994 Olympic tournament if he had been demoted to the minor leagues. On September 27, 1993, he attended the Panthers' training camp without a job and eventually committed to a two-year contract without an Olympic participation guarantee. The team called him to the Cincinnati Cyclones in the IHL four days later. Young, who was unhappy with the Panthers' handling of the situation, chose not to report and returned to his Boston home. He never returned to organized hockey.
