Ho-sang is among the most skilled prospects in the Islanders system with his potential, flashy hands and the ability to put up points. On the other side of things, some have criticized him at times for his perceived selfish play and attitude problems. His abilities with the puck are rare and Ho-Sang can be a game breaker.
Ho-Sang attended Hockey Canada's U20 camp in the summer and is a candidate to skate in the 2016 World Junior Championship. He will attend his second training camp with the Islanders looking to see some NHL time before likely returning to Niagara for his fourth OHL season in 2015-16. Ho-Sang's offensive ability is substantial and he will be a welcome addition when he is NHL-ready — both physically and in his approach to the game.
