After his first game back, Josh Ho-Sang had some interesting comments. The New York Islanders prospect did and said nothing wrong.

Back to back days writing about Josh Ho-Sang, what is this Eyes on JHS? Well, when the New York Islanders lightning rod returns the storylines start flowing. In Ho-Sang’s post-game he dropped some quotes that not everyone was happy with.

Michael Fornabaio who covers the Sound Tigers asked Ho-Sang how he felt after his return. “Gucci, dude. You can quote that.” He continued “This is just the start. Crashin’ nets and cashin’ checks.”

Gasp! A 23-year-old is excited to be back playing hockey at the pro level and used language a 23-year-old would use. How dare he!

Is this the generic hockey answer we’ve grown to expect from players? Absolutely not, and that’s okay. In a sport that needs to grow desperately, you need more personality. JHS certainly provides personality, there’s no arguing that.

If you don’t like his turnovers on the ice, or pass-first mentality I’ll give you that one. I disagree, thinking that the pros of having an offensive mind on the ice outweigh the cons but I can see the other side of the argument.

Off the ice, specifically with this Q and A response, I don’t see the outrage. You’re outraged just to push a narrative if that’s the case. Let the kid play, and stop nitpicking every single move this guy does on and off the ice.
