Hickey update

Thomas Hickey sat out part of the WHL playoffs because of a concussion, but that wasn’t his biggest problem. Hickey had surgery this week to repair a torn ligament in his ankle and will be off the ice for 6 to 8 weeks. It’s not known when exactly the injury happened, but Hickey definitely played for a while, knowing he was hurt bad. If you’re the Kings, that’s both admirable and terrifying. Hickey should be skating by the time the Kings have their prospects camp in July.

    Hope these injuries do not hamper his development and his confidence.

    If it slows him a bit in the short-term, you can certainly expect the Hickey and DL detractors to descend in droves.

    Not a great sign that he is getting banged up at this level.

    Why, because inuries only happen in the pro’s? What a lame comment!

    I hope it isnt too bad. I had surgery for a torn ligament in my hand and it sucked.

    Any chance you guys can find an update on how Boyle is doing?

    Whatn is truly lame is taking a projected 2nd
    round pick at #4

    What’s lame is trying to make a smart comment when you’re flat out wrong- ISS (and Central Scouting) had him projected as a 1st round pick http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?fid=10631

    Projected anywhere between
    10th and 30th
    Nobody had him in top 5

    Get over it!!! DL wanted Hickey, he tried to trade up, but was not able to. He still wanted Hickey so he picked him. Get over it!!!

    In 4-5 years if Hickey is not kicking butt in a Kings jersey, I will be bitching right along side you. Until then, please get over it, because it is too early to say it was a good, or bad pick.

    Do you even realise that Hickey can practically skate circles around the fab 4 (top D prospects in this year’s draft)? He is also a better passer than any of them including Doughty? Especially Doughty!! On top of that, for being smaller and lighter, he plays bigger than Doughty in all 3 zones.

    At this point in time, what is there to bitch at?
