The New Jersey Devils signed veteran defenceman Thomas Hickey to a professional tryout contract on Monday.

Hickey, 33, spent the past nine seasons in the New York Islanders organization. He went without a point in two games with the Islanders last season, posting six goals and 18 points in 34 AHL games with the Bridgeport Islanders and Ontario Reign. 

The 33-year-old was limited to just five games during the 2020-21 season due to injury and appeared in only 14 AHL games in 2019-20.

Selected fourth overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2007 NHL Draft, Hickey has 22 goals and 117 points in 456 career games, all with the Islanders.
