Ho-Sang Named CCM/AHL Rookie of the Month
The American Hockey League announced today that Bridgeport Sound Tigers forward Josh Ho-Sang, St. John’s IceCaps forward Chris Terry and San Jose Barracuda goaltender Troy Grosenick have been selected as the league’s award winners for February.
Ho-Sang, the CCM/AHL Rookie of the Month, scored five goals and added 10 assists for 15 points while registering a plus-9 rating in 12 games for Bridgeport in February.
Ho-Sang had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over Rochester on Feb. 3, and assisted on the only goal in the Sound Tigers’ 1-0 victory at Providence on Feb. 10. He established personal bests with three assists and four points in a 5-2 win at Rochester on Feb. 17, and came back the following afternoon with a goal and two assists to help Bridgeport to a 3-2 victory at Albany. Ho-Sang wrapped up the month with an assist on the deciding goal in a 2-1 win over Hershey on Feb. 26.
The 21-year-old Ho-Sang has recorded 10 goals and 26 assists for 36 points in 48 games for Bridgeport this season, tied for sixth among all AHL rookies in scoring. The native of Thornhill, Ont., was a first-round choice (28th overall) by the New York Islanders in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, and earned his first career recall earlier this week.
Each monthly award winner will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming home game in recognition of his achievement. For more on the other February award winners, click here or visit the league's official website at www.theahl.com.
