Observations

March 2019 – Hellickson is a long-term project at best and has shown some decent potential at Notre Dame. He has four goals and 12 assists this year for the Fighting Irish. His steadier play has been noticed but offensive expectations are higher. He expects to play at least another year or two for the university. Chris Wassel

July 2017 – At 19, Hellickson is a puck-moving, strong-skating, overage prospect headed to Notre Dame for 2017-18. A Minnesota native with a left-handed shot, he was a two-year member of the United States National Team Developmental Program preceding 2016-17, dishing four assists in seven 2016 WJC-U18 contests. He spent last year wearing the “A” for USHL Clark Cup runner-up Sioux City’s blue line (6 goals, 22 assists and a 19-plus in 52 contests) earning a spot in the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game. Praised for his poise, vision and passing ability. Kevin Wickersham
