I think he has a great chance to make the team too but I think Hickey has a leg up on him. Yes Voinov played in the AHL for the whole season last year while Hickey played the majority of the season in the WHL but Hickey is almost a full year older the Voynov. I realize this will make less and less of a difference as they both get older but the physical difference between a 19 and 20 year old can be 5-10 pounds of muscle. Not a "night and day" difference, no, but an advantage for Hickey none the less.
