Islanders Select Ho-Sang 28th Overall
Ontario-born forward scored 85 points last season in OHL

The New York Islanders have selected Josh Ho-Sang with the 28th overall pick in the 2014 National Hockey League Draft. The Islanders acquired the, pick moments before it was announced, in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightening in exchange for the 35th and 57th picks in the draft. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow announced the selection Friday at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Ho-Sang, a native of Toronto, Ontario, scored 85 points (32 goals, 53 assists) in 67 games with the Windsor Spitfires this past season, his second Ontario Hockey League campaign. The 5’11, 175-pound forward added three points (one goal, two assists) in four OHL playoff games last season.

In 2012-13, Ho-Sang scored 44 points (14 goals, 30 assists) in 63 games as a rookie with Windsor.

On the international stage, he played for Team Canada-Ontario at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring five points (two goals, three assists) in five games. Ho-Sang scored 79 points (31-48—79) in 30 games with the Toronto Marlboros of the Greater Toronto Hockey League in 2011-12, forming a dynamic duo with 2015 draft eligible forward Connor McDavid.
