Bryan Young (born August 6, 1986 in Ennismore, Ontario) is a Canadian-born Korean ice hockey defenceman currently playing for High1 of the Asia League Ice Hockey. He was selected in the 5th round, 146th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.
Young played in 186 games over four years with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League. He was not known for his offensive game, as he collected only 30 points over that span. Instead, he was regarded as a solid, stay-at-home defenceman.
Young opened the 2006–07 season playing for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League, but due to the Oilers not having their own farm team, was soon sent down to the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL. When a space opened up with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, he was moved there.
Due to a rash of injuries, Young was called up to the Edmonton Oilers in March 2007.
On January 21, 2014, Young became the naturalized citizen of South Korea.
