Chris Higgins: Released from PTO on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins was released from his tryout agreement with the Flames on Monday.

The 33-year-old winger put up a negative 14 plus-minus in 33 games with Vancouver last year, and only scored four points. He is past his prime, but another team could pick him up to add some organizational depth.

Flames' Chris Higgins: Signs professional tryout agreement with Flames
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Higgins will join Calgary on a professional tryout agreement, as announced Tuesday.

Higgins had a disappointing 2015-16 campaign that included four points in 33 contests, which led the Canucks to buy him out of his contract and cause him to be a free agent. Given those types of numbers, it should come as no surprise the Flames weren't willing to sign the 33-year-old outright. Still, Higgins does have a shot at making the Opening Night roster when you consider the lack of quality depth on the wings for Calgary, but fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere for discounted value this upcoming season.

Chris Higgins: Clears waivers, eligible for buyout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Higgins cleared waivers Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

The Canucks waived Higgins for the purpose of buying out his contract. His offensive production has steadily declined over the years, and he was limited to 33 games last season with various injuries getting in the way. Higgins wears that leadership hat just as well off the ice as he does on it, and it doesn't bode well for the 12-year veteran that he went unclaimed after getting placed on unconditional waivers.

Canucks' Chris Higgins: Will be bought out by Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins has been waived by the Canucks in order to buy him out of his contract, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

Higgins saw his role drastically decrease over the course of the 2015-16 campaign, so it comes as little surprise that the organization has decided to move in a different direction. By buying out the 33-year-old, Vancouver will save an estimated $833,333 in cap space for next season. It remains unclear if the 33-year-old will find a landing spot, but he could be a depth addition for a team in need of veteran leadership,although fantasy owners still holding on to him should consider waiving him as well.

Canucks' Chris Higgins: Buyout candidate with free agency looming
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Higgins is likely to get bought out by the Canucks, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.

Higgins has one year remaining on his four-year, $10 million contract. If the Canucks execute a buyout on the 33-year-old, it will only cost $833,333 against the cap in each of the next two seasons. After landing on waivers last January, Higgins ended up clearing and stayed in the Canucks organization. Unfortunately, he is often injured. In 2015-16, Higgins was limited to 33 games with his numbers -- three goals, one assist and a minus-14 rating -- rendering him useless in the majority of fantasy leagues.
