Ironman Hickey to miss start of season
The Isles announced today that Thomas Hickey will miss 4 weeks with an upper body injury. Hickey, who last season became the 12th Islander defenseman to play at least 100 consecutive games, has missed only one game the last two seasons (11/24/14, ending a 103-game streak).
Hickey has played more games in an Islander uniform the past two seasons (163); Frans Nielsen (158) and Matt Martin (157) played the most among forwards over the same span.
The Isles will play 9 regular season games between now and October 27th, which is the 4-week mark.
