(Waiver) Isles snag Thomas Hickey, Preds gets Rich Clune

Good claim for them. They'll should have a decent defense in a few years.

Project move. Hickey is a career tier 2 player. He is just too small for the NHL. He also doesn't have the offensive skills accomadate his small size. It's going to be a uphill battle for him to make the NHL full time. He will get a few games, but he's not a NHL player. Don't think he will ever reach that level.

The Islanders are hoping Thomas Hickey turns out to be another Michael Grabner. A young player with potential that wasn't good enough to make the team, gets waived to get sent to the minors.

I'm actually surprised that the Kings didn't realize Hickey would likely be claimed if he went through waivers, or that if they didn't care, that they didn't at least try to get a 6th or 7th rounder or something in a trade return. I'm sure there could have been some takers at that price.

Hickey-Hamonic

Reinhart-De Haan

Team Canada WJC defense, good call Snow.

Not sure why the Preds would claim Clune, he is small and lives in the penalty box.

Man, am I glad the Kings went off the board with that one, instead of getting Voracek or Couture or something. They'd be even MORE stacked.

Good move by the Isles, Hickey has the potential to be a very good d-man

I would say Hickey is a better investment than Barker

Could turn out to be a good pick up by the Isles. I'm surprised LA didn't at least try to get a late pick for him.
