It will likely recover. Depending on how cold it can get in your area, sometimes this can help protect a tree. The ice will remain closer to right at freezing, if the temperatures are way below.

You can prune any growth that is dead. To check, bend the stem. It should feel bendable. If it breaks, then it is dying or dead.
