Thomas Hickey played in his 300th NHL game as a member of the New York Islanders.
Despite being the fourth overall pick in 2007 by the Los Angeles Kings, the Kings put him on waivers prior to the 2012-13 season and he has been a solid member of the Islanders defensive corps ever since. After four assists in his previous two games, Hickey was held off the scoresheet in New York's 6-2 win over Winnipeg. He has three goals and 11 points in 36 games so his fantasy value is negligible.

Thomas Hickey scored the winner Monday in overtime to give the Islanders a 2-1 win over Calgary.

It was Hickey's second of the season and it came at a perfect time for the struggling Islanders who badly needed a win. Hickey has been playing solid hockey but is not an offensive weapon as 22 points is the best NHL season he has ever had. He shouldn't be in your lineup but if he was on Monday, you got a nice bonus.

Coach Jack Capuano felt that the hit by Brian Boyle on Thomas Hickey was a little high on Tuesday night.

"I just feel like the hit was high," Capuano said. "I'm going to stand by what I said." Hickey was bleeding out of his mouth following the game, but he appears to be all right. Boyle, who scored the game winner after the hit on Hickey, won't face supplemental discipline for the hit.

Calgary Native Thomas Hickey scored one in front of some home town fans Thursday night.

It's always fun to score, even better in your home rink, and the best in your home city. Two out of three ain't bad. The goal was Hickey's third of the season which brings his points up to nine through 40 games.

Thomas Hickey recorded an assist in the Islanders' 4-0 victory against New Jersey on Sunday.

Hickey snapped a five-game point drought. That gives him two goals and four points in 12 contests in 2015-16. We wouldn't count on him having much fantasy value in standard leagues for the rest of the season.

Thomas Hickey had an assist in a 5-3 victory over Colorado on Monday.

The New York Islanders have activated Thomas Hickey (leg) from the injured reserve list.

This was expected as Hickey has been practicing of late and is expected to play on Saturday night. Hickey has two goals in four games but he only had four goals in 82 contests last season so don't even think he will score a lot the rest of the way.

Thomas Hickey (leg) could be back in the lineup Saturday.

The Islanders would have to send someone (likely Adam Pelech) to the minors as Hickey is currently on the injured reserve list. The defenseman has been out of action since October 24 and has two goals in only four games this season.

Thomas Hickey (leg) will travel with the Islanders on their upcoming two-game road trip.

The hope is that Hickey will be available for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay. He's resumed practicing, so whether or not he's able to play on Saturday, Hickey does appear to be close to returning.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 02:20:00 PM

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.
