Fickle Josh Ho-Sang returns to Islanders on one-year deal

The Islanders agreed to terms with restricted free agent Josh Ho-Sang on a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.

The 23-year-old forward, a first-round pick by the Isles in 2014, notched eight goals and 43 points in AHL Bridgeport in 2018-19, while skating in 10 games with the big club and producing a goal and an assist.

Michael Dal Colle also agreed to terms on a two-year deal, while RFA Anthony Beauvillier remains unsigned.

Ho-Sang has had a contentious relationship with the franchise throughout his career, stemming from an incident in which he overslept at training camp and was sent back to his junior club. He has been outspoken about what feels is a lack of chances from the organization, which didn’t change despite Lou Lamoriello and Barry Trotz taking over last season.

While he’s been unable to find consistency at the NHL level despite his major offensive upside, he’ll have at least one more training camp to show Islanders brass he can make an impression.
