Observations:

 

June 2014 – The New York Islanders selected Josh Ho-Sang 28th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross


April 2014 - Josh Ho-Sang was suspended 15 games for a dangerous play that resulted in Knights defenseman Zach Bell breaking his leg in Game 3 of the first round series versus London. The suspension has been one of the most debated disciplinary actions of the season and the video can be viewed below. Ho-Sang will start serving his 15-game suspension at the start of the 2014-15 OHL season. Brendan Ross


April 2014 - Josh Ho-Sang had a successful sophomore season recording career highs in goals (32), assists (53), points (85), plus/minus (+26) and penalty minutes (44) topping his team in scoring. He improved his defensive commitment and attention to detail but remains a high-risk style of player who relies on dangerous passing plays all too often. Heading towards the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Ho-Sang is one of the draft's top skaters and a player with big upside but he does come with some concerns - mainly, his size and carefree offensive game. Brendan Ross


August 2013 – The Windsor Spitfires quickly snapped up Joshua Ho-Sang at 5th overall after he experienced a slight fall at the 2012 OHL Priority Selection Draft. Ho-Sang, a former star of the Toronto Marlboros of the GTHL, is a highly skilled, dynamic forward with elite skating ability. It’s not uncommon to witness Ho-Sang dancing his way down the ice showcasing impressive puck skills in ultimate confidence. Opponents are forced to give him extra space to ensure he doesn’t make them look silly by accelerating or dangling past them. However, while Ho-Sang’s offensive prowess is certainly captivating, too often he is guilty of playing too much like an individual forcing plays and looking off teammates. Assumming Ho-Sang can learn to best utilize his teammates and improve his team game, he has the chance to develop into a true star.  Brendan Ross


 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Extremely talented offensive forward with great individualistic skills. He will compete for a top 30 selection at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
