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.

Thomas Hickey scored the lone goal for the Islanders in their 3-1 loss to the Penguins on Saturday night.

Brock Nelson and Ryan Strome had the assists. The goal was his first of the season, after a 22-point 2013-14 campaign. Hickey’s offensive upside is limited, but he could get into the 30-point range this season. Travis Hamonic had 17 penalty minutes in the loss.

Thomas Hickey is on a three game scoring streak.

The defenseman has scored once, assisted twice and is plus-eight in the three games. He has three goals and 11 points in 54 games with a plus-nine rating. He has had a great fantasy week but overall, he is not worth a roster spot on your team.

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.

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 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.
