It wouldn’t be much of a surprise to North Stars fans to learn that Layne Young has always played forward.

The North Stars sniper was a goal scorer his whole life, including this season where he leads the team with 14 goals, good for the third most in the league.

If you guessed the North Stars’ leading scorer through 20 games of the 2016-17 season would be Layne Young, you’d be right.

Sitting atop the team points lead along with last year’s rookie of the year is a new name: Connor Logan.

North Stars defenceman Connor Sych has an impressive memory.

At least for some things.

He remembers winning a baseball championship with North Stars teammate Taryn Kotchorek when he was young, though he can’t pinpoint the exact age or the name of the team.
