#17 - Tim Young

Tim Michael Young
Position: Right Wing
Born February 22, 1955 in Scarborough, Ontario
Height: 6' 1" Weight: 190
Traded to Jets by Minnesota North Stars for Craig Levie and Tom Ward, August 3, 1983. Traded to Philadelphia Flyers for future considerations, October 16, 1984.
The Jets acquired veteran Tim Young from the Minnesota North Stars during the summer of 1983 and he spent one season with the Jets before being dealt to the Philadelphia Flyers in October 1984. He retired following the 1984-1985 season in which he split between the Flyers and their farm team in Hershey. He was originally a first-round draft choice of the Los Angeles Kings in 1975, but he spent his entire NHL career with the North Stars prior to joining the Jets. While with the North Stars, he was future General Manager Lou Nanne's roommate. His most infamous moment as a Jet came against the Oilers when he had a clear opportunity to hit Wayne Gretzky into the boards, but he instead grabbed Gretzky, turned him around, and took the blow himself to avoid harming Gretzky.
