As a young player on some dreadful Stars teams, he led them in scoring in each of his first two seasons. In his sophomore year of 1976-77, Young was an NHL All Star selection. That same year, he scored 95 points, shattering Dennis Hextall's previous team record of 82 in a season. (That record would stand until 1981-82, when Smith, Ciccarelli, and Broten each passed him.)
One record Young will hold for all time is the North Stars mark for goals in a single game. On January 15, 1979 at Madison Square Garden, Young lit the lamp five times in a 8-1 North Stars victory over the Rangers. He was the only North Star to ever have a five-goal game.
On the North Stars all-time lists, Young ranks eighth in goals (178) and fifth in assists (316). His 494 total points as a North Star is sixth all-time, trailing only Broten, Bellows, Ciccarelli, Smith, and Bill Goldsworthy.
