What are you talking about?

People keep perpetuating this myth that Hickey was injured for two years or some long period of time.

His first full-time pro season, he missed the bulk of the middle of the regular season, only playing 19 games. He was back before the playoffs, though. And that's the only significant injury time his entire career. He's been very durable before and after that one season. Injuries are no excuse whatsoever for his total lack of development.
