Watch Josh Ho-Sang score ridiculous trick-shot goal (VIDEO)

Buzzing The Net

What a brazen display of individuality, and what an affront to every lunch-bucket hockey player's hockey player who could always be counted on for a honest effort every shift.

There was a little shootout competition during the BioSteel hockey camp in Toronto on Saturday. Vancouver Canucks prospect and Belleville Bulls defenceman Jordan Subban got a lot of attention for scoring an 'alley-oop goal' on his brother Malcolm Subban, taking a high flip pass out of the air and redirecting the puck into the net. Arguably, though, that outspoken offensive dynamo Josh Ho-Sang topped it.

One day after saying Hockey Canada is "afraid" to invite him to its national junior camp, the New York Islanders first-round pick pulled off a great bit of derring-do — a spinnerama with a lacrosse-style over-the-shoulder shot to pick a corner of the net. Look at the bend in the stick.

That is, surely, the move Ho-Sang had saved up to use Team Canada ever needed him in a shootout in the world championship gold-medal game. Just kidding.

It never ceases to amaze what hockey players will come up with for sheer entertainment when they have a clean sheet of ice to work with and a fun environment. Know this much: with Columbus Blue Jackets top pick Sonny Milano now with the Plymouth Whalers and Ho-Sang likely due to come back a year older and year bolder with the Spitfires, the two 18-year-olds will be tempted to try to match whatever the other maestro does. Hey, as long as it's done to help the team. The first potential matchup is Oct. 23 in Windsor.
