2012-13: Hishon made his pro debut with Colorado AHL affiliate Lake Erie in March after nearly two years off the ice due to injury. He scored his first professional goal in his fifth game on March 29th against the Chicago Wolves and in nine games for the Monsters he scored 1 goal with 5 assists and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes. Lake Erie finished third in the North Division but missed the AHL playoffs.
A gritty, offensive spark plug that is equally adept creating scoring opportunities for himself or for others. A strong skater with great balance, Hishon's only obstacles are his humble size and a knack for getting injured.
Hishon is projected to be a top six center but so far his career has been riddled with injuries. He has yet to play a full season of professional hockey, but has been a productive player in the AHL when healthy.
