The Development Of Josh Ho-Sang

from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,

Along the way, there have been many detractors of Josh Ho-Sang. And yet nobody has disputed his talent, to be on display when the Islanders’ 2014 first-round pick (28th overall) takes the ice at the team’s Blue-and-White prospects scrimmage Wednesday night at Barclays Center.

But the personality and the attitude of this brash 19-year-old, well, that’s something different. It so often rubbed people the wrong way as he plowed through the junior ranks in Canada, including the gurus who overlooked his abundant on-ice skills and never picked him for a big-time international competition, a decision that had drawn his outspoken ire.

And yet in all of that, there is a distinct feeling if and when he becomes a part of this Islanders team, New York might embrace his personality rather than ridicule it.

“You have to think you’re the best player,” Ho-Sang told The Post in a refreshing, matter-of-fact way at the Islanders prospect camp at Eisenhower Park on Tuesday.

Wanted him last year at the draft. Wanted Kenny to do what Garf Snow did. Was disappointed that he didn’t. I expect Ho-Sang will be a really good player at the NHL level.
