New York Islanders forward Josh Ho-Sang is developing a reputation for not being afraid to speak his mind. This time he didn't hold back when explaining how he felt about the team's current arena situation.

The Islanders have played at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center since the beginning of the 2015-16 season, where the venue has been criticized by fans and players alike. It was made for the city's NBA team and is not designed to handle NHL action, leading to discussion that the Islanders could pursue a new arena.

The 21-year-old made his NHL debut with the Islanders last season, notching 10 points in 21 games. He's expected to be one of the team's best offensive weapons in the coming years. It's clear from his attitude that he just enjoys playing the game and could care less about any external distractions.
