The Chicago Wolves announced Saturday that defenseman Gus Young has been traded to the San Antonio Rampage for future considerations.

Young signed a contract with the Wolves on Aug. 12, 2016. This season, the 25-year-old skated in six games for Chicago and registered an assist, a -2 plus/minus rating and 26 penalty minutes.

Prior to joining the Wolves, Young spent time with the Worcester Sharks (2014-15) and the San Jose Barracuda (2015-16). Through two-plus American Hockey League seasons, Young owns 8 goals and 23 assists in 132 regular-season games.

The Dedham, Massachusetts, native played for the Yale Bulldogs for four seasons (2010-14). He was a member of the squad that won the 2013 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey National Championship, the first in the school’s history. Young factored on one goal in the 4-0 title-game victory over Quinnipiac University. He finished his college career with 40 points (12 goals, 28 assists) in 110 games.

Young was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the seventh round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
