Howie Young made his way through the OHA Jr ranks, to the WHL, QHL, and AHL before seeing his first NHL game action with the Detroit Red Wings in the 1960-61 season.

There was no middle ground for a hockey fan and their feelings toward Young. He was a supreme agitator, especially in the 1962-63 season when he compiled a league-leading 273 penalty minutes in 64 games.

He was traded to Chicago by Detroit after the 1962-63 season and appeared in 39 games with the Blackhawks before they traded him to the Los Angeles Blades of the WHL while retaining his NHL rights, before the start of the 1964-65 season. After two years in the WHL he found himself back in the NHL with the Red Wings in 1966-67.

The expansion of the NHL in 1967 allowed Young another couple of years in the league with both Detroit and Chicago before his National Hockey League days drew to a close as a member of the Vancouver Canucks in 1970-71.

Young was named to the WHLs first all-star team in 1974 as a member of the Phoenix Roadrunners. When Phoenix was granted a World Hockey Association franchise prior to the beginning of the 1974-75 season, his playing rights were transferred from the WHL Roadrunners to the new WHA Roadrunners. He was dealt to the Winnipeg Jets in January 1975 but did not play hockey at all the following year.

He signed with Phoenix as a free agent in February 1977 and played another 26 WHA games before finishing his hockey career in the minors.
