Joe Hicketts will become the first ever Victoria Royal to get into an NHL regular season game, as he's been called up from Grand Rapids by the Detroit Red Wings.


Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill says he is going to play Hicketts against the New Jersey Devils tomorrow.

Ya good for him!

Of course, the 1980-81 Cougars had 15 guys go on to play in the NHL. Crazy eh, just from that one year.

Royals have been around 5 years and this is a first.

The Royals have only two regular season games left. They'll be in the playoffs, and it looks like they'll be playing Vancouver in the first round.
