The New York Islanders loaned Josh Ho-Sang to Swedish club Orebro HK in the latest turn in the ongoing saga that has been Ho-Sang’s time with the organization.
The move ends any hope that Ho-Sang would at least get the opportunity to play in the American Hockey League with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. After Ho-Sang cleared waivers last week, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reported that the talented, but controversial forward would report to Bridgeport if the organization wanted him to.
After signing a one-year deal and avoiding arbitration, Josh Ho-Sang was not invited to Islanders camp to compete for a roster spot this year.
Ho-Sang’s tenure with the Islanders has been at time exciting and at times confusing. Off-ice issues remained with him from his first camp when he showed up late to the first day of training camp.
Josh Ho-Sang has always been a skilled player, but has never managed to stick with the NHL club. In 53 NHL games, Ho-Sang has seven goals and 24 points.
