New York Islanders Prospects: Three Players Deserving of Call Up
Joshua Ho-Sang is probably the most interesting player on this list. He’s been very close to making the New York Islanders roster, but was been sent down in the past to gain some maturity in the AHL, and experience playing against men.
Although Ho-Sang may show up to practice late sometimes or be a little bit of a goof in the locker room, the upsides outweigh the downsides.
His playmaking ability is shining bright this season, as he has amassed 13 assists in the 23 games he played in.
The playmaking ability he has, as well as his speed, is the perfect compliment to John Tavares, as he can weave through the defense and set Tavares up for a beautiful one-timer.
His playmaking ability could also help speed up the New York Islanders stagnate power play. As the way he plays his game is much needed on that powerplay
Finally, the Islanders need some new life in that locker room, so adding someone with a personality like Ho-Sang’s is more beneficial than anything for the Isles.
The only downside I see with Ho-Sang is that he hasn’t produced many goals in the AHL with only two to his name in his 24 games played with the Sound Tigers. If Ho-Sang could find a way to score more goals, he could very well find himself on the New York Islanders roster.
