Josh Ho-Sang | GP: 13, Pts: 14

It’s all about Josh Ho-Sang at the moment. Nevermind that Michael Dal Colle is still putting up points and ranks in the top ten for scoring in the AHL. It’s about the meteoric rise of Josh Ho-Sang. We knew that Ho-Sang was good. But not scoring at will good.

Over the last two weeks, Ho-Sang has gone from regrettable quote with the New York Post to near the top of the AHL scoring charts. Over his last four games, Josh Ho-sang has scored ten points. Three two-point nights and a four-point game. He had four points in his previous nine games. He more than doubled his production in just over a third of the time.

It’s incredible to think what Josh Ho-Sang can become with some motivation. He’s clearly a cut above the AHL. When he wants to be. Hopefully, Josh Ho-Sang continues to play at this rate and can force himself into the Isles roster.

Defensemen
Parker Wotherspoon | GP:12, Pts:9

While Devon Toews is clearly the class of the Islanders defensive prospects, Parker Wotherspoon has started to step up big for the Sound Tigers. Over the last two weeks, he’s added six points as the Sound Tigers started to string some wins together.

The fourth-round pick in 2015 is in his second year of AHL hockey and is clearly getting better. His nine points on the year are just over half of his 2017-18 production (17pts). There’s no way that Wotherspoon makes the Isles lineup this season, but it’s nice to know that after Devon Toews the Isles still have some quality in the AHL.
