Mark Young

1 NHL Game

December 11, 1980 Quebec Nordiques vs Boston Bruins. 5-3 win.

   Mark Young was a star athlete growing up. While starting goal for Holy Cross College he was also captain of their baseball team. The undrafted goalie was courted by several NHL teams but decided to sign with the Quebec Nordiques.

   December 10, 1980 goalie Michel Dion dramatically ended his career as a Quebec Nordique. After allowing 4 early goals he pulled himself from the game and tossed his gloves, mask and stick over the boards. Michel Plasse finished the game but the Nordiques were left a goalie short. They suspended Dion indefinitely. The next day Mark Young was recalled from the minor leagues to dress as backup to Plasse. A couple days later the Nords purchased a new goalie, Ron Grahame, and Young was sent back down to the EHL.
