    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Heading to AHL Utica

    Higgins is on his way to AHL Utica after clearing waivers Wednesday, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports. The organization has already expressed their intent to trade Higgins in an effort to create opportunities for young players, so it appears that they will continue to do so with Higgins in the minors. It's fairly surprising that Higgins decided to report to Utica, as there was speculation that Higgins would seek to have his contract terminated if the Canucks couldn't find a trade partner. If Higgins is to find a new landing spot, he could still provide some fantasy value.

    Higgins will be placed on waivers Tuesday, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports. Higgins recently fell out of favor with coach Willie Desjardins to the point where he's no longer with the team.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: No longer with team

    Higgins is no longer with the Canucks, and won't play as the team explores options trading him, Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province reports. Higgins will not play to avoid an injury that could potentially compromise a trade elsewhere. The Canucks are looking to get some younger bodies consistent playing time, making the veteran winger an expendable asset. As a result, he will now await a trade elsewhere, though it's unclear whether he will end up in the NHL or the AHL.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Returning Monday

    Higgins (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Monday against Los Angeles. The American forward has missed multiple stretches of the season with undisclosed injuries, and it has really stifled his production. Through 21 games, Higgins has scored just two goals and one assist after scoring 36 points last season. Higgins should feature on one of the Canucks' top-three lines.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Game-time decision Tuesday

    Higgins (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Lightning, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports. Higgins has been ice cold this season, grabbing just two goals and one assist in 21 outings. The expectations were high for the 32-year-old after he posted back-to-back seasons with over 35 points, but the winger has failed to make an impact since returning from a preseason foot injury.

Higgins has missed Vancouver's last two games with an undisclosed injury, but has skated several times without issue of late, and feels ready to draw back into the Canucks' lineup for Saturday's matchup with Boston. Assuming he's able to play, Higgins will likely slot into a bottom-six role in Saturday's contest.
