Saginaw Spirit defenseman Dalton Young has been charged with multiple offenses after a pair of alleged incidents involving his girlfriend and her father.

Per The Times Herald (Port Huron, Michigan), Marysville police allege Young, 20, first assaulted his girlfriend (for which he was arrested on Thursday and released Friday), then…

The same day, he visited his girlfriend’s home in the 2700 block of River Road, [Marysville Police Chief Tim Buelow] said.

Upon learning that his girlfriend wasn’t home, Young allegedly forced his way into the home and entered the parents’ bedroom, and then proceeded into the kitchen.

The Marysville woman’s parents called Young’s parents. Young’s parents came over and were speaking with the homeowners when Young exited the kitchen and stabbed his girlfriend’s father in the back, Buelow said.

Officers responded to the home. After attending to the stabbing victim, they found Young attempting to remove a rifle from a locked secured rack in a Marysville patrol car.

Young was arrested and taken to St. Clair County Jail.

The 48-year-old man stabbed by Young was treated and released from the hospital.

Young had 45 points in 68 games for the Spirit in 2012-13. He has not been drafted by an NHL team.

    I attend a lot of Saginaw games, and this is out of left field. Never heard of any previous on or off ice issues before. Hopefully everyone involved comes out of this happy and healthy, and any real tragedy is avoided.

      65 PIM in 170 games played. Out of left field sounds like an understatement.

        The hell does PIM have to do with it? Tons of enforcers beat people up on the ice but not off it.
