    Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Returns to the ice

    Hickey (lower body) skated Monday for the first time since landing on the IR, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Hickey was initially slated to miss at least a month, but it appears as though he's progressing well enough to not miss much more than that after landing on the IR toward the end of October. The team will likely have an updated timetable as he continues to skate and practice, but his return to the ice Monday is encouraging either way.

    Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Placed on IR

    Hickey was placed on injured reserve Monday. Hickey remains without a specific timetable at this point, but he's expected to miss an extended period of time. The Islanders currently only boast six defensemen following his placement on IR, so it wouldn't be surprising if the team recalled another blueliner in the near future.

    Islanders' Thomas Hickey: On scoreboard for first time in 2015-16

    Hickey tallied his first goal of the season on his only shot in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Jackets. The unassisted tally came in the third period when Hickey, playing up high, made a superb defensive play to pick off a pass along the blue line, push the puck ahead, drive to the net, and pull a backhand move to score on Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney. You won't see Hickey make his way onto too many highlight reels, but the 26-year-old can help those in very deep leagues with his occasional offensive contributions.

    Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Skating at practice Wednesday

    Hickey (upper body) returned to practice with the rest of the team on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Hickey was expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks with his injury and has just gotten past the two week mark. His return to practice is a boon for the Islanders as they could use his left-handed shot back on the blue line alongside Marek Zidlicky to give them three strong defensive pairings. His return would likely spell the end of Brian Strait's hold on a starting spot.

  • Placed on IR

    News: Thomas Hickey (upper body) was placed on IR on Friday, reports Newsday.
