Yesterday we made an article about the breakout forwards in the state, today we are back with the breakout defenseman. This exclusive subscriber-only content will be produced at a higher clip over the rest of the season. Thanks to all of our subscribers, we will be dedicating a ton of time to this site going forward.

  1. Easton Young 5'11 Senior Defenseman Grand Rapids

Easton Young was on our list of players to watch this year, and he has definitely lived up to that. Last season Young had 17 points in 16 games, but this year he already has 16 points in 10 games. Young is a really good playmaker that can put the puck in the net when needed as well. We didn't have Easton Young ranked after last season, but after the start, he is having right now- he is for sure making the next update. If Easton keeps producing at this rate, he could get noticed and might pick up and offer or go to juniors. Right now he is our breakout defender of the year, an early candidate.
