After requesting a trade, the New York Islanders sent Josh Ho-Sang home. He hasn’t played all year but based on his social media feed he might be returning.

The Josh Ho-Sang and New York Islanders saga has been a weird one from the beginning. Perhaps the oddest storylines of them all is Ho-Sang not playing a single minute in the NHL or AHL for the last three months.

He requested a trade after being sent to the AHL after a productive Training Camp. Since then, Ho-Sang was asked to not report while the Islanders looked for a trade. Ho-Sang hasn’t been traded, but it looks like he might be coming back.

Ho-Sang took to Instagram and posted this video late last night:

What does it mean? I interpreted it as Ho-Sang returning to the Islanders organization. If I had a guess, JHS will be back in the AHL sooner rather than later. Sure, it could possibly mean a trade happened but I feel like we would’ve heard something by now.

This situation has been a weird one for both sides, and if they allow Ho-Sang to come back and play for the organization he might be able to gain some value back, I can’t imagine that he has much value sitting at home and skating on his own.

In 56 AHL games last year, Ho-Sang had 43 points. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if he put up big numbers in the AHL. The question for Ho-Sang has always been if and when he’ll get a fair shake at the NHL level.
