Hickey Update

I've looked around and checked with a few people and I don't really have any news to report other than what is already out there.

Thomas has only played in two exhibition games for the Kings and those came in the first two games of the exhibition season. That made me guess that he would be sent back to Seattle today... however... the Kings have made some moves that would indicate that they are prepared to start the season with Hickey and give him a chance to see what he can do since they can always call up an older player from the "A" if/when they decide Hickey is not ready quite yet.

So my guess was wrong and it looks like we might have a wait possibly a lot longer before knowing about Hickey's status.

The Kings have made their final preseason cuts:

He's been released to Seattle

Assigned to Manchester (AHL):
Alec Martinez - D
Teddy Purcell - RW
Jonathan Quick - G
Kevin Westgarth - RW

Returned to Junior Team:
Thomas Hickey - D (WHL)

Placed on Injured Reserve list:
Marc-Andre Cliche (shoulder)
Rich Clune (chest)

That actually takes the roster down to 22, and the day's big winners are...Wayne Simmonds and Oscar Moller, who both stand to make the opening-night roster. The Kings haven't officially announced the season-opening roster, and probably won't until late Wednesday morning, but barring changes, this is it...
