Thomas Hickey notched a goal and two helpers in the Islanders' 5-4 triumph over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.

Hickey finished with a plus-4 rating in the contest. It marked the seventh straight game that he logged more than 20 minutes of ice time, which is slightly higher than his average (19:01) action per match this year. He also had four blocked shots to give him 85 in 40 games.

Thomas Hickey injured his foot after blocking a shot Saturday and did not return.

Hickey was looked at by the medical staff on Sunday but there is no word on the severity of his injury. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has a goal and four points in 24 games with a plus-two rating and 12 penalty minutes so he is a fringe fantasy player at best in deep leagues.

Thomas Hickey scored his first goal of the season on Saturday.

The fourth overall pick in the 2007 Draft has been a major disappointment and was finally waived by Los Angeles on Jan. 15th of this year with the Islanders picking him up. He has four points in 17 games this season with a plus-four rating but we will not recommend him even in the deepest of leagues at this time.

New York Islanders agree to two-year contract extension with Thomas Hickey.

Hickey and the Isles were reportedly close to a deal a couple weeks ago. The new deal will reportedly pay him $1.35 million on a one-way contract. The 24-year old is a solid depth defenseman for the Isles who should take on a bigger role in his sophomore campaign. Hickey had four points and eight penalty minutes in 39 games as a rookie in 2013

Thomas Hickey made his second career playoff appearance in Game 5 Thursday night.

He got the nod over rugged blueliner Matt Carkner in the contest. Hickey hadn't played since Game 1. He has no points, six blocks and a minus-2 rating against the Penguins in New York's quarterfinal series.

Thomas Hickey has enjoyed being paired with Lubomir Visnovsky for the past two months.

"He's such a positive guy, so it's mostly 'good job' or 'keep doing that,'" Hickey said. "You see the decisions he makes, when to jump into the play and when we switch sides inside the zone to confuse the coverage. I'm picking up a lot." The 24-year-old has played in 37 games with the Islanders during his first NHL season, while posting four points and a plus-10 rating.

Thomas Hickey contributed two assists in the Islanders' 6-3 win over Montreal Tuesday night.

In 16 games this campaign, he has three points and a plus-1 rating while seeing 14:29 of average ice time. The 24-year-old defenseman is playing in his first NHL season after he was claimed off waivers by the Islanders in January.

Thomas Hickey has been a healthy scratch for the past three games, but he's expected to play Tuesday night against Ottawa.

The Islanders lost defenseman Brian Strait to a broken ankle Monday, so Hickey is poised to take his place. Hickey has no points and a minus-5 rating in eight games with New York this campaign after being claimed off waivers from Los Angeles back in January.

The New York Islanders have claimed Thomas Hickey off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings.

Hickey was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Kings, but he was never able to crack the team's lineup so he is still waiting to make his NHL debut. Hickey has 12 points in 33 games with Manchester in the AHL this campaign. The Islanders added another defenseman in Joe Finley off waivers from Buffalo on Monday, so they are creating some competition for roster spots.

Thomas Hickey scored his third goal of the season as his Manchester Monarchs dropped a 3-2 decision to Worcester Monday.

Hickey has been a major disappointment since being drafted fourth overall in the 2007 Draft. The defenseman has been surpassed by many on the Kings depth chart and he now has 10 points on the season after his power play goal. Hickey will likely need a change of scenery if he is able to make the NHL as he will turn 24 years of age in February.
