I don't know what the Kings saw in Hickey, but it was clearly something, he was a good offensive d-man in junior, he just never took the next step and now his career upside is another Mike Weaver. But atleast there was some potential for something.

The Teubert pick was just horrendous and indefensible. There is never any justifiable reason to draft a player with that type of skill set in the middle of the first round. The Kings did this plenty over the years (Biron, Zultek, Karlsson, Steckel) and hopefully that time has passed.

No ill will towards Hickey, wish him good luck, this is just a case of a kid who likely peaked at 18 or 19.
