Playing career

In 1978, when the Rangers acquired Swedish stars Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson from the WHA's Winnipeg Jets, Hickey was selected to play on a line with them in part because of his speed and scoring ability.

Hickey would later be part of a high scoring line in Toronto, along with Rick Vaive and Bill Derlago.
