Josh Ho-Sang has made many headlines throughout his short NHL career, skipping around the league and various teams.

He last played in the AHL with the Toronto Marlies during the 2021-2022 season, before shipping off to the KHL.


His hockey career, according to HockeyDB.com looks to have ended after his short stay with the Ufa Salavat Yulayev in the KHL, for 1 game.

From KHL to 808s

He has since moved on from hockey to pursue a career in hip-hop as the 28-year-old, has released an album called "The Same" today.

The album includes 18 tracks including interesting song titles such as, Curious George Goes To College, Walking On Sun, and Papi For MVP.

The album is available for streaming on Spotify.

The album itself is under 50 minutes, making it a longer-than-usual hip-hop project by standards nowadays. His influences are blatant as they pull from Kanye West and Estelle calling back to the 00s.

Ho-Sang's last year in the NHL was in 2018-2019 for which he'd appear in 10 games for the New York Islanders, and finished his hockey career in the KHL with UFA Salavat Yulaev.
