20 year old defenseman Joe Hicketts is practicing with the Victoria Royals in anticipation of the upcoming Detroit Red Wings camp. Hicketts is a signed prospect by the Red Wings after going undrafted. Victoria’s Captain is expected to turn pro this year, which would mean he wouldn’t return for his overage season with the Royals. I caught up with Jumbo Joe at the SOFMC Tuesday to talk about the off-season and the upcoming NHL camp.
The Royals host the Giants in exhibition this Saturday Sept. 10th, 2pm at the SOFMC.
