Josh Ho-Sang is doing exactly what he should be doing; putting up points in the AHL. It’s forcing the New York Islanders to take notice.

New York Islanders Josh Ho-Sang is trying to do right by the organization after a recent article in the New York Post didn’t shed the relationship between the former first-round pick and the organization in the most positive light.

Ultimately, Josh Ho-Sang doesn’t feel like he should be playing in the AHL. To a certain degree, he’s right. When Ho-Sang has been in the NHL he’s been nothing short of electric.

But during training camp, Ho-Sang didn’t necessarily stand out to anyone. So to the AHL, he went. And through the first few games, he wasn’t proving anyone wrong. In nine games, Josh Ho-Sang had four points.

And then the New York Post article hit on October 30th, on November 2nd in the Sound Tigers next game after the article ran Ho-Sang put up two points. He’s put up another eight after that in the next three games.

For the New York Islanders, this is outstanding news. So how soon till he’s called up to the big leagues?

What Else Do We Talk About?

Thomas Greiss continues to be a dominant presence for the New York Islanders. With a 0.940SV% and a 1.98GAA he’s the polar opposite of what he was last season. To the benefit of the Islanders.

The last time the New York Islanders went 5-0 was at the end of the 2016-17 season when John Tavares was injured. Without him now…is there a correlation? Or are we just trying to have a bit of fun?

Is there anything to worry about with Mathew Barzal? He doesn’t have a point in the last three games now. He still looks like the same player, but maybe that’s the issue. Predictability?
