Spirit sign free agent defenseman Young

The Saginaw Spirit announced the signing today of free agent Dalton Young, a 1993-born defenseman that played with the Belle Tire Major Midget team last season.

Young is scheduled to participate in the Spirit rookie camp, which will take place Saturday and Sunday in Saginaw.

“Dalton is a very skilled, smart player,” stated Spirit director of scouting Jim Paliafito. “He is an excellent skater who reminds me of Nick Lidstrom with the way he plays the game.”

Young spent two seasons in the Belle Tire system with the U18 and the U16 squads, posting a combined 13 goals and 26 assists for 39 points in 77 games in the past two seasons, six goals and 15 assists in the 2009-2010 season with the U18 Major Midgets.

The Marysville native will wear No. 77 for the Spirit.
