According to TSN, Islanders prospect Josh Ho-Sang in a recent interview spoke his mind regarding his snub from the World Junior team last year by Hockey Canada.
Some snippets from his interview include at one point Ho-Sang saying, "I don't play for Hockey Canada, I play for New York." He continued, "I don't really care if nobody else does..." On his feelings about his omission he said, "The fact that I haven't been invited to a camp, it's insulting..." When attempting to figure out a reason for his omission Ho-Sang said, "They can't invite me to that stuff because they are afraid." When asked directly why Hockey Canada wouldn't want him Ho-Sang said, "I don't know."
I know this will turn some people off because players especially young ones that speak up like this aren't usually looked favorably upon like Ho-Sang alludes to in the piece. However, I love this! I love that Ho-Sang is himself and he isn't afraid to be himself. While I hope he matures as he gets older I hope he doesn't lose that element of his personality.
