He was officially placed on IR on Saturday.
Analysis: Bickell has been out since Oct. 30 with what the team initially described as an undisclosed illness. The 30-year-old said in a statement that he hopes to keep playing, though it's certainly possible the condition could end his career. Former Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding was also diagnosed with MS in 2012, but returned to play in 29 games during the 2013-14 season before retiring.
