Forward Josh Ho-Sang, a New York Islanders 2014 first-round draft pick, said he’s embarrassed by being cut by the team for oversleeping on the first day of training camp.
Ho-Sang, 19, was sent packing from the Isles to the Niagara IceDogs, his Ontario Hockey League major juniors team and told bluntly by Islanders General Manager Garth Snow to get his act together.
“Obviously a lot more people found out about my mistake than other people’s daily one, but I definitely take ownership,” Ho-Sang told the Long Island newspaper Newsday following an IceDogs 2-1 preseason loss to the Kitchener Rangers in which Ho-Sang scored the lone Niagara Falls goal. “I don’t think there’s anyone to blame…it’s embarrassing.”
