After Hickey was taken, Mcphee nearly ****ed up and took Gagner. He started "The Washington Capitals select from the London Knights..." then realized his mistake and took Alzner. Hilarious.

That draft worked out well for the Caps. Best of luck to Hickey.
Is there a video of that anywhere?

Back on topic, clearly Hickey was not going to get any ice-time in LA. This could be the best thing to ever happen to him.
