Isles' Hickey Grabs Two Assists Tuesday

News: Thomas Hickey assisted on two goals in Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The two helpers give Thomas Hickey a modest total of five over 11 contests this month. He'll continue to provide most of his fantasy value in the form of blocked shots, a category he ranks second in on the team, with 198.

Isles' Hickey Enjoying Small Scoring Burst

News: Thomas Hickey heads into the Olympic break with two goals and three assists over his last nine games.
Analysis: His 16 points on the season certainly aren't anything special, but Thomas Hickey hasn't been a major liability in any one category by defensemen standards. Over 60 games, he's posted 106 blocks, 58 hits, 22 penalty minutes and a plus-5 rating. If he can maintain his recent scoring burst to any degree once the Islanders resume play, he could merit more interest beyond deep leagues.

Isles' Hickey Will Play Wednesday

News: Contrary to a prior report, Thomas Hickey (lower body) will play Wednesday against the Jets, Newsday reports.
Analysis: A bruised ankle, suffered in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia, will not keep Thomas Hickey from the ice Wednesday. It's big for the Islanders, who are already thin along the blue line, with Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) and Brian Strait (upper body) out of action.

Isles' Hickey Out Wednesday

Isles' Hickey Breaks Nose, Tallies First Point

News: Thomas Hickey suffered a broken nose during the first period of Friday's game, but returned to pick up his first point of the season and finish plus-3 in the win over Pittsburgh, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Most of Thomas Hickey's value is accrued as a stay-at-home type on the Isles' blue line, as evidenced by his nine-game drought without a point prior to Friday. He's now carrying a plus-5 rating for the season, while seeing just under 18 minutes per game on the back end for the Islanders.

Analysis: Thomas Hickey broke into the NHL last season, where he had four points and a plus-9 rating over 39 games. The highlight of his season was his first career NHL goal, which turned out to be a game-winner in overtime. The 24-year-old will bolster the Isles' defensive depth while he looks to expand his role on the team.

Hickey Gets Qualifying Offer From Isles

News: The Islanders have extended Thomas Hickey a qualifying offer, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: A former first-round pick (fourth overall in 2007 by the Kings), Thomas Hickey recorded just four points in 39 games in his first NHL action last year and hasn't shown much offense in the minors, leaving his fantasy value pretty low.

Isles' Hickey Will Have A Chance To Play A Big Role

News: Thomas Hickey could play a bigger role for the Isles than first thought, according to Newsday.
Analysis: It's pretty much beating a dead horse right now to say the Isles need help on the blueline. Thomas Hickey was once the fourth overall pick in the draft but has never played in the NHL. The Isles are hoping, praying, begging, that they hit gold with Hickey much like they did with Matt Moulson and to a lesser extent Michael Grabner when they claimed those two off of waivers.

Hickey Agrees To Deal With Kings

News: Thomas Hickey and the L.A. Kings came to terms on a one-year deal, the team's official site reports.

Kings' Hickey Sent To AHL

News: Thomas Hickey was sent down to the Kings' AHL affiliate in Manchester on Saturday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Thomas Hickey had a chance to break camp with the club but that went out the window once Drew Doughty ended his contract stalemate. He remains a nice prospect and will benefit from regular time in the AHL.

Kings' Hickey Just a Monarch When Season Opens

News: Hickey was sent down to Manchester of the AHL on Friday.
Analysis: Hickey was in a battle for the last spot of the defensive corps for the Kings but will be better served with regular playing time in the AHL for the Monarchs. He's got the talent to quarterback a power play and could team with Drew Doughty to give the Kings of pair of offensive minded blueliners but he'll have to wait a little while longer.

Thomas Hickey

Kings send down three prospects

News: The Kings assigned goalie Jonathan Bernier and defenseman Thomas Hickey to Manchester of the AHL. They also sent 2009 first-round pick Brayden Schenn to Brandon of the WHL (juniors).
Analysis: The Kings just don't have room at this time for three of first-round picks. Schenn we don't expect to see this season. He needs more time to develop in junior hockey. As for Bernier and Hickey, both players should be up at some point in 2009-10. However, they are only worth stashing in the deepest of Fantasy formats. All three players are solid long-term keepers.

Hickey has six points after WJC

News: Kings defenseman prospect Thomas Hickey has two goals and four assists in six games for Seattle of the WHL since returning from helping Canada win gold at the World Junior Championships. He has produced eight goals, 16 assists and a plus-16 rating in 32 games this season for Seattle.
Analysis: Hickey, the fourth overall pick in 2007, got a look during training camp by the Kings, but they felt it was in his best interest to play another year of juniors. He might not debut in the NHL until 2009-10, so continue to treat him as a long-term Fantasy keeper.

Hickey has appeared in 26 games this season for Seattle of the WHL (juniors). He has six goals, 12 assists and a plus-13 rating.
Analysis: Hickey, the fourth overall pick in 2007, got a look during training camp by the Kings, but they felt it was in his best interest to play another year of juniors. He might not debut in the NHL until 2009-10, so continue to treat him as a long-term Fantasy keeper.

Hickey sent back to juniors

News: The Kings announced Monday that defenseman Thomas Hickey was reassigned to his junior team -- Seattle of the WHL. He has been with the team since 2004-05.
Analysis: Hickey was a surprise draft pick at No. 4 in 2007 and had a legit shot to make the team this season. However, Los Angeles feels he could benefit from more time in junior hockey. Hickey remains just a long-term Fantasy keeper.

Hickey recovering from ankle surgery

News: The Sports Xchange reports Kings D Thomas Hickey is expected to be at 100 percent by the start of training camp in mid-September. Hickey tore ligaments in his ankle during the junior level Western Hockey League season but continued to play. Hickey underwent surgery in April to repair the ankle and missed the Kings' development camp in July, but had the pins and screws removed from his ankle in mid-July and was expected to begin skating in early August. Hickey, the Kings' first-round pick in 2007, is thought to have a chance to make the NHL roster next season.
Analysis: Hickey models his game after Red Wings D Brian Rafalski. Hickey is best known for his offensive skills. He's capable of skating the puck out of the offensive zone and makes solid outlet passes. Hickey could end up breaking camp with the Kings since they currently have just four defenseman with NHL experience. "They don't say too much," Hickey said when asked if the Kings have revealed their plans for him. "I think everyone has a shot going into camp, and you've got to prove yourself. That's how I take it." Hickey remains a decent long-term keeper, and if it looks as though he will break camp, consider him a late-round sleeper in seasonal leagues.

Hickey ready for crack at NHL

News: NHL.com reports while all eyes have been on the Kings' two first-round picks in 2008 -- Drew Doughty and Colten Teubert -- fans can't forget that Los Angeles also drafted a defenseman with the fourth pick in 2007 -- Thomas Hickey. "I was really surprised at the time," Hickey said of being selected fourth overall. "It was something I didn't really expect, since I didn't talk to the Kings a whole lot. I didn't know that they were very interested in me, so I was really surprised when it happened." Hickey spent last season with Seattle of the WHL (juniors), recording 11 goals and 34 assists in 63 games. He underwent offseason ankle surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Analysis: Hickey models his game after Red Wings D Brian Rafalski. Hickey is best known for his offensive skills. He's capable of skating the puck out of the offensive zone and makes solid outlet passes. "I think the offensive part is what gets noticed in my game, but I take a great deal of pride in the way I play defense," he said. Hickey could end up breaking camp with the Kings since they currently have just four defenseman with NHL experience. "They don't say too much," Hickey said when asked if the Kings have revealed their plans for him. "I think everyone has a shot going into camp, and you've got to prove yourself. That's how I take it." Hickey remains a decent long-term keeper, and if it looks as though he will break camp, consider him a late-round sleeper in seasonal leagues.
