There isn’t a good reason to have New York Islanders rookie Josh Ho-Sang sitting in the AHL at the moment. The Islanders can use help throughout the roster and playing in the AHL isn’t helping anyone. Just end the charade and move him. Josh Ho-Sang deservedly made the New York Islanders right out of training […]
