New York Islanders youngsters Josh Ho-Sang and Kieffer Bellows stopped by Schartz on Sports to discuss minicamp and the upcoming season.

The calendar is steadily moving closer to July which means only one thing in the hockey world: the free agent period is upon us. 

We’ve already experienced the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Now, only a few days remain until the craziness of the free agency period happens, including the local New York Islanders.

Speaking of these Isles, free agency isn’t the only hope. The youth that’s currently in-house is something that is extremely exciting. Two youngsters especially hype us up in Joshua Ho-Sang and Keiffer Bellows.

Ho-Sang was called up last year and tallied four goals and six assists in just 21 games. Bellows was the first round pick a season ago and is hoping to make an impact as soon as possible.

Fortunately for us, both youngsters dropped by Schwartz on Sports to discuss the Isles current minicamp and the upcoming NHL season.
