Thomas Hickey

Thomas Hickey currently serves as a studio analyst for New York Islanders telecasts on MSG Networks. The former Islanders defenseman is teaming up with host Shannon Hogan for Islanders pregame, intermission and postgame coverage during this season.

A nine-year NHL veteran, Hickey totaled 117 points (22 goals, 95 assists) throughout his career. After being selected fourth overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2007 NHL Draft, he made his debut with the Islanders in 2013 and helped lead the team to the playoffs in three of his first four seasons.

In the 2015-16 season, Hickey scored a memorable overtime goal against Washington, which officially clinched the Islanders’ spot in the postseason. Just two weeks later, he scored his first career playoff goal in overtime of Game 3 against Florida, giving the Islanders a 2–1 series lead in the first round series.

On the international stage, the Calgary native also represented Canada and won the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2008 and 2009.
