Maryland forward Young makes NCAA DI commitment

January 6, 2022

The Maryland Black Bears of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Tyler Young has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Merrimack College in Hockey East.

Young, 20, is in his first season playing in the NAHL for Maryland and third season overall of junior hockey.

The 6’1/180 lbs. native of Lancaster, MA, has recorded nine points (2 goals, 7 assists) in 10 games so far during the 2021-22 season. Young, who joined the Black Bears in mid-November from the USHL, has recorded at least a point in eight of his 10 games played so far this season.

"I’m so grateful for my time here in Maryland. I can’t thank my coaches and teammates enough for welcoming me with open arms and treating me like family since day 1. I'm excited to see what we can do as a group as the season goes on and I can’t wait to become a Warrior at Merrimack College,” said Young.

"Tyler has been a huge addition to our program since he arrived. He has an extremely strong work ethic and the competitive drive to be an impact player at the next level.   Merrimack is getting a great kid, and player for their program. Congrats to Tyler, and in the future, we look forward to seeing him compete in Hockey East as a student-athlete,” said Black Bears head coach Clint Mylymok.
