An­other Dragon is on his way to play­ing at post-sec­ondary level as Cody Young com­mits to the Univer­sity of Al­berta Au­gus­tana Univer­sity for the 2017-2018 sea­son.

The 1996-born for­ward, orig­i­nally from Saska­toon, will be play­ing for the Vik­ings in the Al­berta Col­lege Ath­let­ics Con­fer­ence (ACAC) Men’s Hockey League.

“He also played a huge role help­ing Drumheller make the play­offs dur­ing an in­jury-filled sea­son. He was a player that left ev­ery­thing he had on the ice and will be a valu­able ad­di­tion to the Au­gus­tana Vik­ings Men’s Hockey Pro­gram,” said Dragons head coach Kevin Has­sel­berg.

Young came to the Dragons from the Spruce Grove Saints in Novem­ber of the 2016/17 sea­son. With the Dragons, he played 42 games with 19 goals and 15 as­sists.

Over the course of Cody’s ju­nior hockey ca­reer, he spent time with the Kin­der­s­ley Klip­pers, Spruce Grove Saints, and the Dragons for ca­reer to­tals of 70 goals, 94 as­sists for 164 points. Cody was also se­lected to rep­re­sent Team Canada West at the World Ju­nior A Chal­lenge dur­ing the 2014-15 sea­son.

“Cody had a tremen­dous ju­nior ca­reer con­tribut­ing to the suc­cess of the three Ju­nior Pro­grams he played for. He was in­stru­men­tal lead­ing the Kin­der­s­ley Klip­pers into the play­offs in both of his sea­sons in the Saskatchewan Ju­nior Hockey League play­ing 19 post­sea­son games,” said Has­sel­berg.

As a Vik­ing, Young will be join­ing for­mer Drumheller Dragons Cody Fiala and Cur­tis Skip, and a num­ber of AJHL alumni.
