Flamboyant forward Josh Ho-Sang has put his dream of making it in the National Hockey League (NHL) on hold as he continues his career overseas. < /p>
According to ESPN, the former New York Islanders first-round pick has signed a one-year deal with Salavat Yulayev Ufa of the Continental Hockey League (KHL). < /p>
Ho-Sang, who sparked controversy by briefly wearing number 66 with the Isles, was playing with the Toronto Marlies in 2021-22. He signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he had 35 points in 47 games.
The Ontarian also represented Canada at the Beijing Olympics last February, where he had three assists in five games.
This will be Ho-Sang's second stint in Europe. He played nine games in the Swedish Elite League in 2020-21.
The 26-year-old winger spent four seasons with the Islanders, but only played 53 NHL games .
Ho-Sang will join former Carolina Hurricanes first-round selection Ryan Murphy in Ufa, who has also just formalized his marriage to this KHL team.
