  • Chris Higgins: Clears waivers, eligible for buyout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/28/16) 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, but 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/16) 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 CBSSports.com
    (6/26/16) 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 Vancouver $833,333 against the cap in each of the next two seasons. Despite 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 -- there goals, one assist and a minus-14 -- rendering him useless in the majority of fantasy leagues.

    Canucks' Chris Higgins: Out for finale Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/16) Higgins (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Edmonton.

    Higgins already missed out on Monday's 3-2 victory over the Kings, and it's unclear when (or if) he will return with two additional games remaining this season.
