TORONTO - The mystery of Joshua Ho-Sang, singular hockey player of immense talent, caught on an island of discourse, will begin to untangle sometime this weekend.

It won’t necessarily be on Friday night when the best of the best will be selected in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft.

It’s entirely possible — maybe even closer to probable — that the most naturally gifted player available will not be selected in the first 30 picks.

According to sources, numerous NHL teams have Ho-Sang on their Do Not Draft List.

And only 18 of 30 teams chose to interview him at the recent NHL Combine — and many came away stunned and disappointed.
