Leduc, AB native and Spruce Grove Saint defenceman Brandon Hickey has an Oilers connection.
“I grew up watching them,” Hickey said. “I’ve watched a lot of hockey of the Edmonton Oilers. Growing up, it was my dad’s favourite team and he passed that passion on to me. In our basement we have a little hockey rink with the Oilers logo in the middle. It’s pretty neat to even just talk to them here.”
Hickey is the 63rd-ranked North American skater by Central Scouting. He is just under 6-foot-2 and just over 175 pounds. He had a 22-point season (4-18-22 in 49 games) for Spruce Grove this year.
