HO-SANG LEAVING LONG ISLAND

Josh Ho-Sang is leaving Long Island and North American for the time being via a loan agreement. The New York Islanders have loaned the 24-year-old to Orebro HK of the Swedish Hockey League according to Arthur Staple of The Athletic.

Ever since the Islanders drafted Josh Ho-Sang, their relationship has been rocky to say the least. On the first day of his first NHL training camp, Ho-Sang overslept and missed the team shuttle to the arena. As a punishment, the Isles made him run the stairs at Nassau Coliseum for three hours, but that wasn't enough as the team proceeded to send him back to his junior club, the Niagara IceDogs (OHL).

Ho-Sang was drafted in the first round, 28th overall by the Islanders in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Despite his talent, he's only appeared in 53 games for New York, recording 24 points (7 G, 17 A), 20 penalty minutes, and is a -4.

Prior to turning pro, Ho-Sang had a very successful junior career in the Ontario Hockey League with the Windsor Spitfires, and Niagara IceDogs. In 256 regular season games, he had 292 points (82 G, 210 A), 156 penalty minutes, and was a +38. In 32 playoff games, he tallied 45 points (8 G, 37 A), 36 penalty minutes, and was a -8.

Ho-Sang will be joining Islanders prospect Robin Salo at Orebro HK. Playing in Europe will be an interesting test for the Thornhill, Ontario native as he looks to reach his potential, and one day suit up for an NHL club.
