Riptide Sign Veteran Forward Brett Hickey to One-Year Deal

UNIONDALE, NY (January 18, 2023) – New York Riptide announced today that the club has agreed to terms with right-handed forward Brett Hickey. The 32-year-old Guelph, Ontario native is a former 50 goal scorer who brings nine years, and over 100 games of NLL experience to the Riptide.

Hickey spent the majority of the 2021-22 season with the Philadelphia Wings where he scored 15 goals and added 21 assists for 36 points in 12 games played. The 6’2’ 225lb forward was dealt to the San Diego Seals in the latter half of the ’22 season where he put up 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists) in seven games played. Hickey began the 2022-23 campaign with the Calgary Roughnecks where he appeared in two of four games, but was released last week.

“We are excited to get a proven goal scorer like Brett,” said General Manager Rich Lisk. “He is also a high character person who will fit right into our room. I am looking forward to seeing him in a Riptide uniform.”

“I am excited beyond belief to join the Riptide,” said Hickey. “I think they are one of the most fun teams to watch with the young talent they have and the friends I have on the team; and I’m stoked to now be a part of it. I have a lot of friends on this team that I have either coached with or played with, and I am looking forward to rejoining them.”

Hickey is expected to make his Riptide debut in Saturday’s game against the Albany FireWolves, Saturday at 7:00pm at the MVP Arena in Albany.
