Josh Ho-Sang on pre-Draft criticism: 'I don't play for scouts, I play for the Islanders'
New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow had a unique response to criticism surrounding the team's decision to draft Josh Ho-Sang with the 28th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft (see below), and on Tuesday, the 18-year-old draftee offered his own two cents to those questioning his character.
Snow later said Ho-Sang "probably has the most talent of anyone in that entire draft." If he's able to put it all together, Ho-Sang could prove to be an absolute steal as a late first round pick.
In 130 OHL games with the Windsor Spitfires, Ho-Sang scored 46 goals and added 83 assists, good for a point-per-game average of 0.99.
Here's what Ho-Sang had to say after the first day of the team's development camp on Tuesday:
- Penguins to start with Karlsson, Letang on top power-play unit
- Matthews willing to embrace bigger role on penalty kill
- Coyotes' Keller: Cooley's dazzling goal 'the best I've ever seen'
- Leafs' Robertson: 'I don't give a f--k' that my name isn't what it once was
- Stone eager to start Cup defense: 'I hope people write us off'
