New York Islanders lightning rod, Josh Ho-Sang had himself a good weekend with the Sound Tigers scoring four goals in two games.
After being scratched not too long ago with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, it appeared that Josh Ho-Sang’s tenure with the New York Islanders was coming to an end. This weekend, he might’ve revived the little bit of life that he had left with the team.
On Saturday, he scored on a breakaway opportunity. It was just his fourth goal of the season, at either level, in 48 games. That was only the start of the strong weekend for Ho-Sang. He followed that up with a hat-trick on Sunday.
All three of the goals came in the third period, including one that was a nice feed from Thomas Hickey. Ho-Sang, who spent 10 games with the Islanders this year, has had a bumpy ride of a season to say the least.
At times, he doesn’t help himself, but when you see Tom Kuhnhackl playing alongside Mathew Barzal it kind of makes you scratch your head as to what JHS did that was so bad. I understand Kuhnhackl is a “professional” but there’s not nearly the same talent level and I think even he would admit that.
Hopefully, this yields one of two things, him getting a call back up to the NHL, or someone taking a flier on him in a trade. JHS sitting in Bridgeport and rotting away doesn’t help him or the Islanders.
