Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Skating with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (personal) took part in Monday's Phase 2 skate, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

When the league went on hiatus, Hickey was away from the team to tend to a personal matter but appears to have returned to Long Island. The defenseman will likely struggle to get into the lineup during the postseason following the trade deadline addition of Andy Greene but could be the next man up if somebody on the blue line picks up an injury.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Dealing with personal matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey left Tuesday's morning skate to attend to a personal matter, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Hickey is believed to be on his way to his hometown of Calgary to deal with a personal matter, so it's safe to assume he won't be available for Tuesday's clash with the Canucks. The 31-year-old blueliner has sat as a healthy scratch in back-to-back contests since being promoted to the big club March 5, so his absence will go unnoticed in fantasy circles.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Still with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey was in attendance at Monday's practice, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he was still with the Islanders.

It's possible the previous reports of Hickey being demoted to AHL Bridgeport was simply a paper move as part of the club trying to bank some cap dollars. The blueliner hasn't appeared in a game for the Isles this season and, based on Monday's practice session, he will likely be watching from the press box for Tuesday's matchup with Vancouver.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders demoted Hickey to AHL Bridgeport on Sunday.

The 31-year-old blueliner watched two games from the press box during his brief NHL stint. Hickey hasn't suited up with the Islanders all season and has just three assists in 14 AHL contests.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders recalled Hickey from AHL Bridgeport on Thursday.

Johnny Boychuk (face) is considered out indefinitely, so Hickey's likely in for an extended stay with the big club. The 31-year-old blueliner has picked up three assists in 14 AHL appearances this season.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Out of AHL lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey is unable to play with Bridgeport due to a lower-body injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

This answers the question as to why Hickey wasn't an option when Adam Pelech was lost for the season due to an Achilles injury. Hickey has no timetable for a return but if the Islanders don't like what they see out of Noah Dobson, then Hickey could once again be an option once he returns to full health.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey did not suffer an injury after a big open-ice hit during the game Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey was able to play in the AHL Sound Tigers 4-3 loss Sunday. Hickey was laid out on the ice for several minutes Saturday and had to be helped off, but all tests were negative and it was decided that he could play Sunday. The Islanders are loaded with defensemen, and it may take more than one injury or roster move for Hickey to be recalled.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Leaves game early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (undisclosed) was forced to leave the game Saturday early after taking a vicious open-ice hit, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey was carrying the puck in the neutral zone when he was crushed from the side by a defender. Hickey was sent flying and was lying on the ice for several minutes before leaving the contest. At this time there is no update as to the exact nature of the injury or how long Hickey may be out of the lineup for. It is worth noting however that Hickey did miss considerable time last season due to a concussion and this hit was up high and it wouldn't be out of the question that this injury is also a concussion.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Sent to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders waived Hickey for reassignment to AHL Bridgeport on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

This could be the end of the line for Hickey in Long Island. He missed significant time due to an upper-body injury last season, and young defensemen like Ryan Pulock and Scott Mayfield stepped up in his stead. However, Hickey's only two years removed from posting 25 points in 69 games for the Islanders, so he could be a solid and cheap ($2.5 million AAV) option for another team to claim off waivers. If not, he'll start the season in the minors.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Outside looking in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey is not expected to be a regular in the lineup for the Islanders this season, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

If no roster move is made, either by trade, injury or waivers, it would seem likely that either Hickey or Johnny Boychuk will be the odd man out on the blue line this year. Hickey currently sits seventh on the depth chart for the Isles and that number would fall to eighth if the team decides that top prospect Noah Dobson has done enough to make the team out of camp.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Likely to draw in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey is expected to take the place of the injured Johnny Boychuk (lower body) when the Islanders resume their quest for the Stanley Cup, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Boychuk will miss the next 2-to-3 weeks due to the injury. Hickey replaced Boychuk on several occasions late in the regular season due to injury or because coach Barry Trotz believed that a change was needed. On the season, Hickey accumulated four assists in 40 games. Hickey will likely play on the third defensive pair when the playoffs resume for the Islanders.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Likely to sit once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey is expected to be a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey only has four points, all assists, in 39 games this season, but his benching has more to do with the Islanders having seven legitimate defenders for six starting spots. This means that someone not deserving will have to sit each game and Barry Trotz seems to have chosen Hickey as that someone more often than not. Hickey may only play if there is an injury to a fellow defenseman or if Trotz believes one of his regular defenders needs a night off.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Eases back into lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) skated 14:48 in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Flames.

Hickey added two PIM and two blocked shots in his return while skating on the third pairing. It's likely he will remain as the sixth defender for the Islanders as long as he remains healthy, competing primarily with Scott Mayfield, who was scratched Tuesday, for minutes.

February 26, 2019 11:08 AM
Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's home tilt against Calgary.

Hickey will be making his long-awaited return to the ice, as he hasn't played since Dec. 17. The 30-year-old will replace Scott Mayfield in the lineup, and it's unclear if Hickey will have his minutes monitored early on. Hickey hasn't quite been a fantasy star this campaign, accumulating just four points in 32 games.

February 25, 2019 02:24 PM
Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Likely returning Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Flames, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey has been out since the middle of December with this particular issue. The expectation is for the 30-year-old to replace Scott Mayfield in the lineup. However, given that Hickey has only four points in 32 games this season, this may not move the fantasy needle much.

February 23, 2019 10:20 PM
Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Sidelined Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) will watch Saturday's contest in Vancouver from the press box, NHL.com reports.

The left-shooting defenseman has already missed the team's last 28 games while dealing with the injury, but he's already completed a conditioning assignment and took part in Saturday's morning skate with his teammates. Hickey's next chance to suit up for game action will now come Tuesday against Calgary.

February 21, 2019 04:16 PM
Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Remains out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) will not rejoin the action Thursday against the Oilers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey will miss his second straight contest since being recalled from his conditioning assignment, but the blueliner's return is likely not far off. The veteran's next opportunity to draw in comes Saturday against the Canucks, though his impending return likely won't have many fantasy implications given his four points through 32 contests.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Will not play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against Calgary, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.

There's a chance that Hickey could return soon, as the Islanders opened up a roster spot by assigning Michael Dal Colle to AHL Bridgeport. For now, however, Hickey officially remains on injured reserve.

February 19, 2019 10:20 AM
Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Back from conditioning assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders recalled Hickey (upper body) on Tuesday from his conditioning assignment at AHL Bridgeport.

The Islanders will bring back both Hickey (upper body) and Andrew Ladd (lower body) from their stints in the AHL over the weekend, during which the two tallied four points (two goals, two assists) and five points (one goal, four helpers), respectively, between games Saturday and Sunday. The Islanders haven't formally activated either player from long-term injured reserve, but the team opened up a roster spot for at least one of two by assigning Michael Dal Colle to Bridgeport in a corresponding move. There's a good chance the team will make another roster move within the next 24 hours to clear room for both Hickey and Ladd to rejoin the lineup Wednesday in Calgary.

Islanders' Thomas Hickey: Three points for Bridgeport
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hickey (upper body) had a goal and two assists for AHL Bridgeport on Sunday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Hickey is currently on long-term IR and was sent to Bridgeport on a conditioning assignment. His play over the weekend would certainly seem to indicate that he's ready to re-join the team, but the Isles appear to be in no hurry to make changes to their lineup unless an injury or trade forces their hand.
