Thomas Hickey scored the game-winning goal in overtime in a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators.

The overtime win keeps the Islanders' slim playoff choices alive. Hickey is now up to four goals and 20 points in 73 games this season and is only two points shy of his career high. The former 4th overall pick has turned into a reliable bottom pairing defensemen but is nowhere near the caliber the Los Angeles Kings were hoping to get when they invested such a high pick on him.

Thomas Hickey will return to the Islanders lineup Sunday after being a healthy scratch Friday.

Adam Pelech took his place on Friday. "Hicks is a big part of our leadership group and he understood it was a one-game thing," coach Doug Weight said. "It wasn’t performance-based whatsoever. I thought it was a good game for Pelly to play [Friday]." Hickey has three goals and 14 points in 60 games with 77 hits and 91 blocked shots so he isn't a great choice to start in traditional pools.

Jan 25 - 1:41 PM

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.
Jan 1 - 10:20 AM

Thomas Hickey collected his second straight two-point game during Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Wild.

Hickey is now up to eight helpers and 11 points in 35 games this season, which unfortunately makes him better suited for the waiver wire.
