Even posters on this board said that through camp, Hickey and Voynov were pretty much neck-in-neck. Considering how Voynov has played this year, Hickey may be more than NHL ready as well.
He seemed to be a better PP QB in the preseason games I saw. He never put up the offensive numbers that Martinez did in the AHL but the penalty killers seemed to respect him more by not attacking him and getting shredded by a pass...again, very small sample size though. I think he still has a future with this team
