Josh Ho-Sang will report to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Islanders President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello confirmed on Tuesday morning.
Ho-Sang reached out to Islanders Assistant General Manager Chris Lamoriello, who discussed the move with Head Coach Brent Thompson before agreeing to welcome Ho-Sang back to the team.
"Josh reached out to Chris Lamoriello and they had a conversation," Lamoriello said. "Chris made the decision to bring him back. Chris and the coach."
Ho-Sang was placed on waivers by the Islanders on Sept. 30 and requested a trade - via his agent - on Oct. 3. Lamoriello requested that Ho-Sang not report to Bridgeport as he looked to honor the request. Lamoriello said that Ho-Sang has a clean slate with the organization upon reporting and that there are no hard feelings from October's events.

"He was the last cut going down to the American League, so he did have a good training camp," Lamoriello said. "Where he's at physically and mentally, we'll just have to wait and see. From our end, he'll have a clean slate. It's in his hands."
"He just has to go there and do what he has to do as a player and conform to the environment and there will be no issues."
Ho-Sang had 43 points (8G, 35A) in 56 games for the Sound Tigers last season. The Islanders' 2014 first-round pick has 24 points (7G, 17A) in 53 career games with the Islanders.
