Ho-Sang missed practice Tuesday due to an illness.

The Islanders don't play until Thursday, so this illness may not cause Ho-Sang to miss any games. Ho-Sang is currently on an emergency recall due to the season-ending shoulder surgery for Nikolai Kulemin, but the Isles can convert that to a normal call-up at anytime this month should they wish. While there is no denying his playmaking ability, Ho-Sang has been in and out of head coach Doug Weight's doghouse due to his tendency to try and make one move too many and thus give up the puck. When he can control that desire and become a more responsible puck carrier, he should be a permanent fixture in the Islanders lineup, as there is little doubt he is one of the the team's top nine forwards.
