I'm sure part of his hype has to do with where he was drafted. But there is a chance that LA still liked him, they just thought they could get him through to the AHL.
Don't forget that the Bridgeport head coach was the Manchester Assistant coach and saw Hickey everyday. He said in an interview that he was a great pick-up.
