    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Out for finale Saturday

    Higgins (lower body) is not in the lineup Saturday night against the visiting Oilers. This news likely won't cause fantasy owners to blink. Higgins finishes the campaign with just four points in 33 games of an injury-plauged campaign. When he was able to take the ice, the 32-year-old was a liability defensively, as evidenced by a minus-14 rating.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Out again Wednesday

    Higgins (lower body) will not play in Monday's game against the Kings. Higgins initially suffered his lower-body injury Friday against the Ducks and there's been no update to his status from the team.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Exits with lower-body injury

    Higgins suffered a lower-body injury in Friday's game against the Ducks and will not return. It's not clear exactly how Higgins was injured, but he will not be able to return to Friday's contest for the third period. The Canucks should provide further information on his status in the near future.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Scores first goal since November in loss

    Higgins tallied a short-handed goal on three shots in 13:42 of ice time during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Sharks. Higgins scored his first goal since Nov. 8, a span of 27 games played. Since that last goal, he's been bounced back and forth from AHL Utica, and thus hasn't been able to gather much traction this season. Despite playing in 77 games last season, the 32-year-old has only played 30 times this season, with just four points and a -14 rating in those 30 games.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Called up to Vancouver

    Higgins was recalled back to the NHL on Saturday. Higgins played in 22 games in the AHL after being waived by the Canucks in mid-January where he registered nine goals and four helpers. The veteran was averaging 14:03 in ice time per night prior to his reassignment and is likely to see similar numbers in his return to the majors.

    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.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Will be placed on waivers Tuesday

    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. It was originally thought that Higgins would be trade bait, but apparently he's destined for AHL Utica unless a team claims him off waivers shortly after Tuesday.

    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.
