Hickey Agrees to Terms on Two-year Deal
Defenseman played 39 games with Islanders last season

The New York Islanders announced today that Thomas Hickey has agreed to terms on a two-year deal.

Hickey, 24, made his National Hockey League debut last season with the Islanders, scoring four points (one goal, three assists) with a plus-9 rating in 39 games. The Calgary, AB, native also made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut with the Islanders, appearing in two games during the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.

The Los Angeles Kings selected Hickey in the first round (4th overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft. He was claimed off waivers by the Islanders on Jan. 15, 2013.

In 212 career American Hockey League games, all with the Manchester Monarchs, Hickey scored 75 points (14 goals, 61 assists) with a plus-24 rating. He was selected to his first AHL All-Star Game in 2012.

A 5’11, 190-pound defenseman, Hickey played four years of junior hockey with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League. He totaled 177 points (39 goals, 138 assists) in 262 career WHL games and was named to the WHL West First All-Star Team in 2008 and 2009.

On the international stage, Hickey played for Team Canada at the 2008 and 2009 World Junior Championships, winning gold both years and serving as team captain in 2009. He also represented Canada-Pacific at the 2006 World Hockey Challenge.
