Ian Young has signed as a goalie for the Steamboat Wranglers, the newest team in the Mountain Division of the Western States Hockey League.
“Ian is a highly competitive goalie who has the ability to steal games for us this season. He has a quiet demeanor off of the ice but on the ice he comes alive. His talent shines in game situations. When the pressure is on he brings his ‘A game’ and that is exactly what you want as the coach,” says Head Coach Ryan Dingle.
Ian was born in Arlington Heights, Ill., and began skating at age three. He started playing hockey at five, with the Park Ridge Hornets and Park Ridge Express, in Illinois. When he was seven, he moved to Lakewood, Colo., and has played with the Foothills Flyers since U8s. He has played AA since his second year of Peewees and played Midget Minor AA the past two years, and during the 2017 season was with the team for a 3rd place finish in the national tournament.
Ian is most looking forward to playing and living in Steamboat Springs as well as the opportunity to advance his career in hockey with the goal of playing on a collegiate level.
The Steamboat Wranglers are now in the WSHL. The WSHL is an Amateur Athletic Union, Tier II Junior “A” hockey league that has been in continuous existence since 1994. The WSHL is the second largest junior hockey league in North America, with 30 teams in 14 states. The Wranglers are part of the Mountain Division of the WSHL.
