RiverKings sign defenseman Ian Young

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – The Mississippi RiverKings, the longest continually operating professional sports franchise in the greater Memphis area, and Head Coach Derek Landmesser have announced today they have signed defenseman Ian Young. Terms and conditions were not released.

Young, 23, joins the RiverKings after a four-year career at Colorado College, where he played in 114 games and added 19 points (4g, 15a). The 6-foot-1, 194-pound defenseman finished his senior season in 2014-15 with 33 games played and four points (1g, 3a). Prior to attending Colorado College, the Red Deer, Alberta native spent two seasons in the USHL from 2009 to 2011, splitting time with the Fargo Force and Chicago Steel. In 89 career USHL games, Young added 38 points (6g, 32a).

Young is expected to make his RiverKings/pro debut tonight when the RiverKings visit the Columbus Cottonmouths at 6:30 p.m. CDT.

To make space for Young on the roster, the RiverKings waived defenseman Alberts Ilisko.
