SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Bridgeport Sound Tigers forward Josh Ho-Sang has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending February 17, 2019.
Ho-Sang recorded four goals and two assists for six points in two games for the Sound Tigers last week.
Ho-Sang had two goals in 37 AHL games this season before tripling that output over the weekend. First, his goal on Saturday night helped Bridgeport rally for a 4-3 overtime victory over Hartford in a game that the Sound Tigers trailed by a goal on three separate occasions. Then on Sunday, Ho-Sang notched his first career hat trick and set a personal best with five points as Bridgeport erased a 3-1 deficit and defeated league-leading Charlotte, 7-3.
The 23-year-old Ho-Sang has totaled six goals and 26 assists for 32 points in 39 games with Bridgeport in 2018-19, his third pro campaign. A first-round selection (28th overall) by the New York Islanders in the 2014 NHL Draft, Ho-Sang also has one goal and one assist in 10 NHL contests this season. The Toronto native has totaled 24 goals and 75 assists for 99 points in 139 career AHL games with the Sound Tigers, as well as seven goals and 17 assists in 53 career NHL matches with the Islanders.
In recognition of being named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week, Ho-Sang will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Sound Tigers home game.
