Goalie Jack Hickey has joined the Green Bay Gamblers of the Tier 1 junior, United States Hockey League from the Batchewana Attack of the new Canadian International Hockey League.
Attack president-director of hockey operations David Maciuk confirmed to HockeyNewsNorth.com that Hickey has been promoted to Green Bay on a fill-in basis.
“We are not sure how long he will be with Green Bay but it’s great to see a hardworking goalie like Jack get this opportunity to play in a top-level junior league, which the USHL is,” said Maciuk.
Hickey, who has a 1995 birth date, joined the Attack this season from the Chicago Young Americans major midget program.
Taking Hickey’s spot on the Attack roster is Shane Lippincott, a 1996 birth-year goalie from the Jersey Shore Wildcats of the Northern States Hockey League.
