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. Mon, Dec 14, 2015 08:34:00 AM

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

Hickey was playing in his second game since returning from a leg injury that sidelined him for roughly a month. He has two goals and three points in six games this season.

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.

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.

It is believed that Hickey hurt his left leg during the third period against St. Louis. He was placed on injured reserve Monday morning.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thomas Hickey is slated to miss four weeks with an upper-body injury.

He missed just one game last season, while posting 22 points, 117 hits and 136 blocks. Hickey won't be available for the season opener on Oct. 9.
