The New York Islanders traded back into the first round and selected Josh Ho-Sang with the 28th pick in the NHL draft Friday night. Islanders GM Garth Snow apparently saw something of a kindred spirit in the much-discussed 18-year-old out of the Ontario Hockey League because now he thinks he's got someone new for the press to "shit on."
As referenced by TSN's James Duthie, plenty was written about Ho-Sang, who somewhere I'm sure was referred to as "mercurial." He is young, cocky, and comes from Jamaican and Jewish backgrounds. Mostly, though, he's not a bullshitter, which makes people nervous.
