The incident occurred at 16:38 of the third period, when Hickey fell while attempting to check Leafs forward Mike Santorelli. Santorelli's skate nicked the right side of Hickey's face, under his visor. Hickey did not return to the Isles' 5-2 loss.
The Islanders have not released any updates on Hickey's condition, though it's clear that he had to have some work done.
