New York Islanders Top 5 Garth Snow Trades To Date
Josh Ho-Sang talked a big game going into his draft year. So big infact, that his stock plummetted almost out of the first round of the draft. So Garth Snow pounced.
He’d already selected Michael Dal Colle at number five in the 2014 draft. But come pick number 28 Garth traded the Isles second-round pick along with Montréal’s, acquired ni the Thomas Vanek trade for the Rangers first held by the Lightning.
He only put up an 85 point campaign with the Windsor Spitfires in 2013-14 in his draft year and followed that up with another 81 season the year after.
Ho-Sang post-draft career started off poorly with that whole alarm clock fiasco that saw him sent back to juniors. And then there was that up-and-down ride that was his AHL season with Bridgeport in 2015-16.
But after all that, he’s in the NHL and making a big impact. He played 21 games with the Islanders last season and was an offensive presence in every contest. He put up 10 points and will likely be named to the team’s roster for the 2017-18 season.
Tampa used the picks to take Dominik Masin (D) and Johnathan MacLeod (D). Masin is with Syracuse and put up six points in 69 games while MacLeod is in his fourth year with Boston University where he’s put up 19 points in 96 games.
