STOCKTON – Bryan Young likes to hit people while playing hockey.
He gets a special joy out of delivering the hard check that can change the flow of the game. And Young has just returned to the Thunder with the hope of helping it pound its way into the playoffs.
Young, a veteran defenseman at the age 23 who already has NHL experience, is considered one of the hardest-hitting defenders in the ECHL. He was recently reassigned from the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League and will play when the Thunder meets the Las Vegas Wranglers at 7:30 p.m. today at Stockton Arena.
