Everblades add Hickey

Eichel isn’t the only Terrier whose season is continuing. Brandon Hickey, a teammate of Eichel on BU’s 2015 Hockey East Champs and national finalist squad, is playing for Florida in the ECHL Kelly Cup Finals. The Everblades hold a 2-0 lead on the Idaho Steelheads in the best-of-seven series. The Leduc, Alberta, native, who captained the Terriers 2018 Hockey East Champs, split the current season between Florida and AHL Henderson.
