Top Matthew Highmore News

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Delivers helper

    Highmore logged an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Highmore set up Luke Schenn's third-period insurance tally. In five games since he returned from an upper-body injury, Highmore has a goal, an assist and 11 shots on net. The 26-year-old is up to 12 points, 59 shots, a plus-1 rating, 40 hits and 38 blocked shots in 44 contests, mainly playing in a bottom-six role.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Expected to return

    Highmore (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Monday's game against Dallas, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Highmore should return to a bottom-six role versus the Stars. He's collected 10 points through 39 contests this campaign.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Downgraded to week-to-week

    Highmore (upper body) is now considered week-to-week according to coach Bruce Boudreau, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Based on his timeline, Highmore figures to miss at least the next three matches for the club due to his upper-body issue. Prior to his absence, the 26-year-old recorded just one point in his last 12 contests while registering just 15 shots. Recent call-up William Lockwood figures to continue deputizing in Highmore's stead.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Unavailable against Stars

    Highmore is dealing with an upper-body injury and will miss Saturday's clash with Dallas, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Highmore was labeled day-to-day by coach Bruce Boudreau, so it doesn't seem like he will be out for an extended period of time. William Lockwood is set to make his season debut with Highmore unavailable. Prior to his injury, Highmore managed just one point in his last 12 appearances, and he's unlikely to offer more than mid-range fantasy value once given the all-clear.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Suiting up Sunday

    Highmore (undisclosed) is playing Sunday against the Sabres, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Highmore seemed to suffer a minor injury against Calgary on Saturday but it won't force him to miss any time. The 26-year-old has 10 points in 36 games this season and will skate in his usual middle-six role.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Spoils shutout Saturday

    Highmore scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames, but he also received medical attention late in the game, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Highmore's goal spoiled Dan Vladar's bid for a shutout Saturday, and it was the forward's first point in his last nine games. He was seen being attended to on the bench, though it's unclear what injury he could be nursing heading into Sunday's game versus the Sabres. The 26-year-old has 10 points, 44 shots on net, 38 hits and a plus-2 rating through 36 appearances this season.

  • Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Rare multi-point effort Sunday

    Highmore scored a power-play goal on two shots and added an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

    Highmore helped out on a Tyler Myers goal late in the first period and then scored one of his own in the second. This was Highmore's first career power-play goal -- the Canucks' first unit played most of the time on their lone power play, and the 26-year-old was on the ice in preparation for play to go back to even strength. He's collected a career-high nine points in 27 outings this season. This was Highmore's second multi-point game of the campaign, but his fourth-line role suggests those will be rare occurrences.

The 25-year-old forward has seven points in 25 outings this season, matching his output from 42 appearances last year. He's added 30 shots on goal, 26 hits, 23 blocked shots, eight PIM and a plus-3 rating while playing mainly in a bottom-six role.

    Highmore (upper body) has been cleared for contact, The Athletic's Harman Dayal reports.
