Hickey (upper body) was placed on injured reserve by the Islanders on Sunday.

Hickey suffered the injury during the loss Sunday in Boston. Hickey has not been a regular defender for the Isles this season but has been part of a five-man rotation for the last three defensive spots. While his loss shouldn't hurt the team much on the ice, it could hurt the Isles' chances of moving him before the trade deadline.
