NHL rosters have been trimmed across the league to meet roster requirements.
There was plenty of interesting names placed on waivers and that led to some unhappy campers.
One of them can be found in New York, where general manager Lou Lamoriello just confirmed with reporters as 23 year old forward has requested a trade.
Josh Ho-Sang has never really fit in with the Islanders and it's always seemed like Lamoriello wasn't a fan of the youngsters way of doing things.
Ho-Sang was placed and subsequently cleared waivers earlier this week when the Islanders finalized their roster. Lamoriello added that he's told Ho-Sang not to report to the AHL while he explores some possible trade options. If there's no trade to be found, he'll head to the AHL and get things started their.
Lamoriello: Didn't want to disrupt Bridgeport's prep for their season starting this weekend. If there's no trade to be found, Ho-Sang will report to BPT. "Once he goes to Bridgeport, he's there."
