Thomas Hickey (leg) skated on Friday but is still likely at least a week away from returning to action.

Hickey has been out of action since October 24 with the injury after he missed the start of the season with a fractured thumb. "Things are progressing well for him and we'll have a better update in the next 48 hours or so of what his status is going to be," coach Jack Capuano said. Hickey had two goals in four games before the injury but scored only twice in 81 games last season so do not expect a lot of goals upon his return.

According to a source, Thomas Hickey will miss at least a month due to a lower-body injury he suffered on Saturday.

Thomas Hickey scored his second goal in three games Friday.

The defenseman suffered a fractured thumb in training camp and returned a lot quicker than the four weeks predicted at the time of his injury near the end of September. He had only four goals and 22 points in 82 games last season so this is more of an anomaly.
Oct 24 - 8:36 AM

The New York Islanders have activated Thomas Hickey (thumb) off injured reserve.

Hickey will make his regular season debut against San Jose tonight. He will enter the lineup for Brian Strait. Hickey had two goals and 22 points in 81 games last season.

Thomas Hickey (fractured thumb) had a full practice Friday.

Hickey is very close to returning to the lineup and should replace Brian Strait on the third unit alongside Marek Zidlicky. He had two goals and 22 points in 81 games last season and you shouldn't expect more than that in 2015-16 in fantasy pools.
Oct 17 - 7:41 AM

Thomas Hickey (fractured thumb) resumed practicing with the Islanders on Wednesday.

Hickey was initially projected to miss four weeks due to the injury and he's a little more than two weeks into that timetable. So while he's making progress, his return likely isn't imminent.
Oct 15 - 9:59 AM

Thomas Hickey (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

No real surprise there. Hickey is projected to miss four weeks due to the injury, so it's only natural that the Islanders would want to move him to the IR. He had two goals and 22 points in 81 games last season.
Oct 2 - 11:21 AM

Thomas Hickey had two assists in a 3-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers.

Hickey has two goals and 18 points in 53 contests in 2014-15. The 26-year-old defenseman is in his sophomore campaign and should be able to comfortably surpass his rookie total of 22 points in 82 contests.
Feb 11 - 11:28 AM

Thomas Hickey is on pace to narrowly top his 2013-14 rookie point total.

Hickey has two goals and 11 points in 33 games in 2014-15 after recording 22 points in his rookie campaign. He doesn't have much untapped offensive upside, so if you're hoping that he'll emerge as a great fantasy option in standard leagues, you're setting yourself up for disappointment.
