And I would like to remind you that Hickey is a substance over style player. Those players don't benefit from these kinds of tournaments (see Teubert as well). Not every player benefits from tournaments such as these (consistent meat and potatoes type players don't do as well as flashy guys)
Hickey played 7 games in the AHL and did well, but I'd hardly call that pro experience. That's barely putting your foot in the water. We'll see how each player does in the AHL next year (maybe one or both of them will make the NHL).
