Profiles

Quotable

  • Quote 1: Joshua Ho-Sang, himself, at NHL.com, “I’m patient, dynamic, and explosive. I like to be precise with the passes and try to take pride in everything when it comes to the offensive side of my game. I’ve really been working on my defensive side this year. I feel I have the drive to be the best every day.”
  • Quote 2: Windsor Spitfires Head Coach Bob Boughner says: “Josh is an immense talent with world class speed and all the tools you could hope for in a young player. He’s got as much raw skill as any forward in the league.”

From the THW War Room

  • Eldon MacDonald, THW: A few words on Joshua Ho-Sang:
    • Mr. Incredible – Watch the videos and see the spin-o-rama, see the puck behave like a yo-yo, see the incredible skating and stick handling.   
    • Skills – Incredible skating and stickhandling, sweet, soft passes, a natural goal scorer, elite creativity and a great shot.
    • Improvements – What I like best about Joshua is the improvements he has shown this year. He has gone from a somewhat selfish puck hog to the guy making the whole team better. In fact, since Windsor Spitfire General Manager, Warren Rychel, traded his son, Kerby Rychel, (Is no one safe these days?), Joshua has taken over as the face of the team and the team is one of the hottest in the OHL.
    • Draft placement – All over the place, ISS has him at 9 and Craig Button had him at 33rd in January, but recently moved him up to 20th. I have him currently at 20 but I will be moving a lot closer to ISS’s ranking if he keeps up his current level of play.

Editor’s Notes

  • Transferrable Skills: Hand-eye coordination – As evidenced on several goals and plays this season (see CHL Top Prospects Game goal), Josh has exceptional hand-eye coordination. Credit should be given to the fact that he has also played tennis at an elite level; not surprising since his father, Wayne, is an ex-tennis pro.
