Any news on how Hickey is doing? He's still young, so I'm hoping(and DL is too) that his play improves over the next 12 months.
In the same game tonight, Moller responds to his demotion with a 3 point night (2g,1a) and Lokti had 2 assists. Moller also scored in the shoot-out, but that won't count for anything.

Because of the weather, it’s been a light week for the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs, who had Monday’s home game against Springfield postponed. The Monarchs did play last night, and beat Adirondack 6-2. The Monarchs took a 6-0 lead less than seven minutes into the second period and won easily. Rich Clune had two goals, and the Monarchs got one goal each from Dwight King, Jordan Nolan, David Kolomatis and John Zeiler. Zeiler also had two assists, as did Justin Azevedo, and King had an assist. Martin Jones stopped 20 of 22 shots in goal.
Jones, a first-year pro, now leads the AHL in goals-against average (1.61) and save percentage (.947). As for scoring, Andrei Loktionov leads the Monarchs in points (26) and assists (21). Azevedo has a team-high 10 goals. Viatcheslav Voynov leads defensemen in scoring with 25 points (five goals, 20 assists). Bud Holloway is another top scorer, with nine goals and 15 assists. Loktionov and Thomas Hickey each have a team-best plus-12 rating.
Jones has a save% 0.947, 11 wins, 2 losses, and a 1,61 after 16 games played. That win record is impressive.
I figured he'd backup this year, be number one next year, and dominate/be NHL ready the year after that. The cream rises, eh?
