</div></div> Thomas Hickey (born February 8, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is a prospect for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Hickey joined the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League (WHL) in 2004–05 in a limited role for 5 games. The following season, in 2005–06, he tallied 28 points as a rookie. In his draft year, in 2006–07, Hickey improved to 9 goals and 50 points. He was then drafted in the off-season by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1st round, 4th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. On July 17, 2007, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Kings. Attending the Kings' training camp, he was returned to the Thunderbirds on September 21, 2007, for a third junior season. During the 2008-2009 season, Hickey suffered an ankle injury that required surgery after the season ended. In November, 2009 Hickey suffered a shoulder injury that would also require surgery and keep him off the ice until April 1, 2010. Not much later, one game before the Monarchs would begin their playoff run for the 2009-2010 season, Hickey sprained his ankle and was unable to play again until the semifinals, when the Monarchs lost to the Hershey Bears. Hickey is currently the Alternate Captain for the Manchester Monarchs.
