It's a formality, yes but it's possible some team takes a flyer on Hickey, particularly a team like the Islanders who have openings in their D rather than rush a 18/19 year old...
This isn't true, or teams would never reclaim players after they have appeared on waivers again...and Grabner/Quincey etc would never get claimed...
Hickey is not on the level of talent, of Grabner/Quincy those were both pretty dumb moves(even if there is an unwritten rule) to put those guys on waivers.
I like Hickey , he is the best D man in Manchester, but is not talented like the two you just mentioned.
I may be proven wrong, But I think Hickey clears waivers.
