NEW YORK, NY – MARCH 25: New York Islanders Joshua Ho-Sang (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)

Most of us were frustrated with Josh Ho-Sang being sent down to the AHL by the New York Islanders. We weren’t the only ones. Josh Ho-Sang was/is frustrated too. And he dropped some truths on us.

Josh Ho-Sang had such a terrific end to the 2016-17 NHL season with the New York Islanders. Called up just at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and just before going on a western road trip, he ended up playing 21 games and put up 10 points in the process. He was electric, he was dynamic. He was everything we wanted out of him.

Josh Ho-Sang commands that type of attention from New York Islanders fans. He’s a get-out-of-your-seat-everytime-he-touches-the-puck type player.

Does he have flaws in his game? Sure, every player does. Every single player has a flaw.

But after a 22 game stint this season, with another 11 points, Ho-Sang was sent down to the AHL. It seemed that his flaws were so severe that they didn’t merit him playing in the NHL. It’s insane. But that’s clearly how the Islanders felt as they sent him back to Bridgeport.

Today, the Athletics Arthur Staple published a piece where he spoke with Josh Ho-Sang about his season. Ho-Sang, as always, was candid with his answers and dropped a number of truths about his time with the Isles that need to be reviewed.
