New York Islanders Daily: Josh Ho-Sang Lock For 2017 Roster
Josh Ho-Sang, the New York Islanders electric prospect, is all but a lock to make the 2017 roster despite limited space at the forward position.
CBS put out something yesterday saying that Josh Ho-Sang is a virtual lock to make the New York Islanders roster. I’ll take it one step further, Josh Ho-Sang is 100% going to be on the roster on opening day next year.
In 21 games with the Isles last year he had four goals and six assists for 10 points. That’s a pace of 16 goals and 23 assists for 39 points. A pace of a 40 point season in your first NHL action is pretty solid.
Plus every time Ho-Sang was on the ice he took over, he was polarizing and much watch television every time he took a shift on the ice. In an age of advanced stats, it’s as simple as the old eye test with Ho-Sang.

The thing I was most impressed with was his maturity. The rhetoric on Ho-Sang was that he was an immature player and frankly a problem. He was nothing even close to that during his quarter of a season with the team.
One of the most exciting things about this upcoming Islanders team is a full season of Ho-Sang, Beauvillier, and dare I say Mathew Barzal. The Isles would be beyond foolish to even consider starting Ho-Sang in Bridgeport.
So yes, I’m putting my neck on the line here saying that Ho-Sang will be on the roster, but I’m pretty confident in this prediction. May the odds be in my favor.
