Yeah, I was surprised at that, too. I'd heart last fall that Young was converting to forward because of the logjam of Devils defenders, so maybe that was a factor? Taking a quick peek at his stats, his offensive numbers are actually down (1 assist in 32 games in the ECHL) but with 50 PIM in 30 GP, his penalty minutes seem to be on the upswing. Maybe he's being converted into an enforcer-type player?
