Windsor Spitfires forward Joshua Ho-Sang, No. 18 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters for the 2014 NHL Draft, on Monday was named the Ontario Hockey League's Player of the Week.
Ho-Sang, whose has a Jamaican father, Chilean mother and Chinese-born great-grandfather, currently is riding a four-game point streak during which he's accounted for four goals and 11 points. Ho-Sang has 23 goals, 62 points and a plus-25 rating in 23 games for this season.
He also had a goal and an assist playing for Team Orr in the 2014 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game earlier this month at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.
Ho-Sang led Windsor to two victories last week, highlighted by a four-point game in an 8-7 shootout win against the Sarnia Sting on Sunday to extend the team's winning streak to four games.
The native of Thornhill, Ontario, was named the game's first star after recording his first OHL hat trick. He also scored the shootout winner. He had been named third star two nights earlier when he collected three assists in a 5-2 victory against the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
"I'm patient, dynamic, and explosive," Ho-Sang told NHL.com. "I like to be precise with the passes and try to take pride in everything when it comes to the offensive side of my game. I've really been working on my defensive side this year. I feel I have the drive to be the best every day."
Ho-Sang, 18, is in his second OHL season with the Spitfires after being chosen fifth in the 2012 OHL draft.
Ho-Sang and the Spitfires will host the Kingston Frontenacs and No. 1-ranked draft prospect Samuel Bennett on Thursday.
