Joshua Ho-Sang constantly thinks about what went wrong for him last fall, according to a story on by Islanders Point Blank podcast co-host, NHL.com's Brian Compton.

"It's tough. I think about it every day," Ho-Sang said. "In a lot of ways, it helped me, and in a lot ways, it was hard. It's part of the reason why I grew up a little more and have come a long way from my mistakes."

Last fall, Ho-Sang, the Islanders' 2014 first-round selection, was invited to the team preseason camp to earn a starting spot on the NHL roster.

The Islanders took a hard-line stance with the young, sometimes controversial, forward. General manager Garth Snow even made a candid remark to Newsday early on Saturday.

Everybody knows Joshua Ho-Sang has skills on the ice. He's shown them off during mini camp in July, training camp in September and over the weekend he did it again during an OHL contest against the Mississauga Steelheads.

During a 3-3 game Ho-Sang went end to end and then did the only thing one should do when they score; the shimmy. See for yourself.

There is no debate that Islanders prospect Joshua Ho-Sang has skills on the ice.

It was on display during the Islanders' mini camp in July and Ho-Sang showed it off again on Tuesday at BioSteel Camp on Tuesday. During a shootout competition the 18-year-old executed a pretty impressive trick shot.

The Islander prospects took part in the annual Blue & White Scrimmage Thursday night at Nassau Coliseum.

Overall it was a success for everyone one involved. The players enjoyed the chance to play a competitive game, the fans got to see hockey in july and the Islanders were able to get 4,000 fans to come to Nassau Coliseum in the middle of summer.

As for evaluating talent during Thursday night's scrimmage -- or for that matter during the course of the week long mini camp -- it is always a challenge. These camps are for the coaches to learn a little bit about the players and instill in them a little bit of what NHL life is like. For the players it's the same thing. They are getting to know the organization and learning what it takes to be a pro athlete.

The Islanders kick off their annual team mini camp on Tuesday at Nassau Coliseum. The week long camp will feature 48 Islander prospects and camp invitees. Here are five player to keep an eye on this week.

Michael Dal Colle:?The 2014 fifth overall draft pick will take his first spin on the Coliseum ice in an Islander uniform. Dal Colle was the consensus choice for the Isles to take at five. He is still at least a year away from making the jump to the NHL, but Dal Colle will be a big part of the Islanders offense in the future. During his 2013-14 OHL season with the Oshawa generals he scored 39 goals and 56 points in 67 games. His big size and stickhandling ability make him a threat in the offensive zone. It will be interesting to see that on display at mini camp, especially during Thursday night's Blue and White Scrimmage. Dal Colle has been pegged as a potential winger of the future to play alongside John Tavares.

PHILADELPHIA -- Joshua Ho-Sang has something to prove and he was appreciative to the Islanders for taking the gamble of drafting him Friday night.

"I think I have 26 teams to show that they missed out," Ho-Sang said after being selected by the Islanders. "And I definitely have to show the Islanders that they were right."

The 18-year-old Windsor Spitfires forward was all smiles when he met the media after being selected 28th overall after the Islander traded back into the first round to draft him. The Islanders swapped their 35th and 57th picks to Tampa Bay to be able to select Ho-Sang.
