Had 51 points in 57 games for Seattle, the next closest defenseman had 21 points. The dub is a more tight league than the OHL, harder to get points in. I watched him carry that team into the playoffs. He was friggin plus 37, the next closest player was plus 16. The stats lie sometimes but there is no way in hell those do, proves he's all-around dominant and a top 20 prospect in the game. And unlike a certain Canadien's prospect he has pro experience. He put up a PPG in his time with the Monarchs in the AHL.
Actually, what is interesting is that while Hickey was +37 on his team, there was only ONE other defenseman who was even positive, and he was only a +1. Hickey dominated. No question.
