Around the NHL: Ho-Sang makes NHL debut
The New York Islanders have dealt with some problems this season. They were last in the NHL at one point. They now sit a point out of the second wild card spot in the Eastern conference with 68 of them (a record of 29-22-10). But the real problem is injuries. Center Casey Cizikas will miss about a month. More news says that center Alan Quine will be out weeks. That led to the call up of prospect Joshua Ho-Sang. Ho-Sang was drafted 28th overall in the 2014 NHL draft. In his first season with Bridgeport (AHL), Ho-Sang has played really well. Ho-Sang, 21, has 36 points (10 goals and 26 assists) in 48 AHL games. Ho-Sang had 292 points (82 goals and 210 assists) in 256 career OHL games in 4 seasons with the Windsor Spitfires and the Niagara IceDogs. He made his NHL debut on Thursday, March 2 in Dallas against the Stars. We'll see how long he's up, and his impact on the Isles while he's up there.
