Bryan Young (born August 6, 1986 in Ennismore. Ontario) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman currently playing in the Edmonton Oilers organization, with the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL.

He was selected in the 5th round, 146th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the 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 Oilers in March 2007.

To start the 2007–08 season, Young played for the Oilers new AHL affiliate in Springfield. He is now playing for the Stockton Thunder.
