Hickeys game has improved allot over the past two seasons and while I hope he goes unclaimed so that he can be on our roster next season I think that he is NHL ready today and another team will pick him up. He is a steady smooth skating PMD type who has learned to play within himself. His game is more suited to being a sort of mobile two way #5/6 guy but I still see him developing into a second pairing dman in a couple of seasons.

Not likely to become a great player but should continue to develop into a good one. Certainly worth picking up when you look around what a few other teams have going. Hickey can play, his injuries right after his draft year held him back and then once he got healthy we were so deep that he has had to claw his way up and as things sit today he is unfortunately a redundant piece in a ridiculously deep Kings franchise (where Dmen are concerned).
