Warren Howard Young (born January 11, 1956 in Toronto, Ontario) is a retired Canadian Professional Hockey Left Winger who played seven seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings.
Young was selected in the 4th Round, 59th overall by the California Seals in the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft and the 7th round, 74th overall by the Hartford Whalers in the 1976 WHA Amateur Draft. He chose instead to play college hockey for Michigan Tech. Upon graduating, he spent three years playing in the minor leagues before being signed as a free agent by the North Stars in 1981, and made his NHL debut that year. He appeared in five games with the North Stars before he was signed as a free agent by the Penguins in 1983. In his first full season of 1984–85, he scored 40 goals and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team that season. His emergence with the Penguins led many teams to increase their scouting of players at the college level. He left the Penguins following that season to sign with the Red Wings but was dealt back to Pittsburgh after one season. He retired in 1988 after playing 236 games in the NHL, scoring 72 goals.
