Islanders prospect Josh Ho-Sang is heading the KHL, according to David Pagnotta.
It’s unclear which KHL club Ho-Sang has signed with, but Pagnotta reports that it is a one-year contract. He is expected to join the KHL club after the Islanders season ends.
Quick update: Ho-Sang has agreed to a 1-year deal with a KHL team for next season. While things can change down the road, I’m told plan is to join them at some point after the Isles season wraps. https://t.co/yb0wPYYxTr

Ho-Sang will be a restricted free agent in October.
The Islanders loaned him to the San Antonio Rampage, the St. Louis Blues AHL affiliate, in February. The move likely signaled the end to Ho-Sang’s time with the Islanders organization.
He appeared in 53 NHL games since the Islanders drafted him 28th overall in 2014. The forward has had a series of off-ice issues since joining the organization.
He infamously showed up late to training camp his first year and was sent back to his junior hockey team. Ho-Sang has been known to be outspoken and has publically criticized the way the team has handled his development at times.
Earlier this year, Ho-Sang requested a trade from the Islanders. After being told not to report to Bridgeport while the team tried to accommodate the request, he was back with the Islanders AHL farm team in December.
