Ho-Sang late for training camp, sent back to junior

You know how some people think Islanders prospect Josh Ho-Sang has an attitude problem?

Well, this won’t help his case to disprove that notion.

From Newsday’s Arthur Staple:

Ho-Sang was among the OHL’s top scorers last season, piling up 81 points in 60 games with Windsor and Niagara.

But he didn’t escape controversy. He was traded to Niagara early in the season, with Windsor coach Bob Boughner saying later:

“It was mandatory that we had to trade him. For many, many, numerous internal reasons, the people that truly know what went on behind the scenes would understand why we had to trade him. We might not be a better team in the standings because of it, but we’re definitely a better team within our four walls and it’s only going to help for the future.”

Now, to be fair to Ho-Sang…

Still, this won’t help his reputation, that’s for sure.
