Bickel drew a penalty yesterday in the first period and on Saturday, Bickel had a roughing penalty and a ten minute misconduct.
Yesterday on 1050 ESPN Radio, John Tortorella said that Bickel's play at RW isn't a long-term solution:
He had a couple of good shifts and drew a penalty. It's a guy with versatility and someone that, as we continue to work with him, we can try and give him some shifts there.It seems like the team wants to keep Bickel up and insert him into games where things may be a little rougher, and that includes tomorrow against Boston. Following that I think the team may call up a forward and keep Bickel up to work as a defenseman and get better as a player.
