      Canucks' Chris Higgins: Given 4-6 week timetable

      Higgins is expected to miss four-to-six weeks. Higgins was expected to be evaluated after three weeks, and his evaluation has revealed a total of four-to-six weeks total for the recovery period. He's currently at the three week mark, so it appears he'll miss another one-to-three weeks in addition to the time he's already been out. The timetable will place a potential return as mid-to-late October with the chance that his absence extends into November.

    • Canucks' Higgins Pots 11th Goal

      News: Chris Higgins scored a power-play goal in Saturday's loss to Dallas.
      Analysis: A rare power-play goal for Chris Higgins, who has just two tallies with the man advantage all season. While he often goes through dry spells, the 31-year-old has two goals and three points in his last three games and is playing alongside the red-hot Radim Vrbata. He's stuck at 11 goals on the season, but his recent play indicates he could be starting a hot streak to finish the regular season. If he can build off these last few performances, he could be worth scooping up in some very deep leagues.
