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.

Chris Higgins

Higgins Chips In Two Points For Canucks

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal and added an empty-net assist Tuesday in a win over the Jets.
Analysis: A nice night for Chris Higgins, who snapped a four-game scoreless skid that came on the heels of a four-game point streak. But it doesn't change his value, which is limited to very deep formats.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Stays Hot Saturday

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Stays Hot Saturday

News: Chris Higgins extended his point streak to four games Saturday, scoring his ninth goal of the season in a win over Toronto.
Analysis: While Chris Higgins is skating on the third line, he's scored in two straight games and had fired five shots on goal in that span. He's had an up-and-down season, but should still end up around the 40-point barrier.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins To Return To Lineup

News: Chris Higgins (lower body) is slated to return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Steve Ewen of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Chris Higgins was a full participant in Friday's practice and skated on the third line with Brad Richardson and Derek Dorsett, so it appears safe to count him in. The left winger had missed the Canucks' previous three games with a suspected groin injury.

Canucks' Higgins Takes Part In Practice

News: Chris Higgins (lower body) took part in a full practice Wednesday, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: It was revealed earlier in the week that Chris Higgins would be facing a long absence due to the injury, but his presence at practice suggests his return may not be so far out after all. Higgins was still absent from a regular line during Wednesday's practice, so at this time it appears likely that he'll at least miss Thursday's game against the Kings.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins (Lower Body) Out For A While

News: Chris Higgins (lower body) will miss an extended period of time, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: Chris Higgins left the ice early during practice Friday in San Jose, and it appears he has suffered a relatively major injury. While no specific timetable was indicated, he has apparently been ruled out for a while.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Out Saturday

News: Chris Higgins will not play in Saturday's game against the Sharks due to a lower-body injury.
Analysis: The reason for Chris Higgins' absence from Saturday's morning skate is now known, as he is dealing with the lower-body setback. It's not clear how long the injury will keep Higgins sidelined, but Brandon McMillan will suit up in his place Saturday night.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Could Be Out Saturday

News: Chris Higgins (undisclosed) could be out Saturday against the Sharks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Chris Higgins, who has provided a point in three straight games, was absent from Friday's practice and Saturday's morning skate, indicating he's nursing some sort of injury. The Canucks are considering him questionable for Saturday's game, with a reevaluation during the afternoon ultimately determining his status.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Tallies Goal In Loss

News: Chris Higgins tallied his eighth goal of the season in Thursday's shootout loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Chris Higgins ran the give-and-go with teammate Jannik Hansen to perfection, cutting the Canucks' deficit to one goal with under eight minutes remaining in the third period. The Canucks would get the equalizer in the final minute of the period before falling in the shootout, where Higgins' third-round misfire gave the Coyotes the victory. Though he wasn't able to come through in the clutch, Higgins at least extended his point streak to three games, tying his second-longest scoring run of the season.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Continues Points Streak

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Continues Points Streak

News: Chris Higgins registered an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Wild.
Analysis: You would have to flip the calendar back to Feb. 7 against the Penguins, a span of six games, to find the last time Chris Higgins was held off the scoresheet. There are flashier options in fantasy hockey but Higgins is a decent choice for those participating in deep fantasy leagues.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Assists Twice

News: Chris Higgins picked up two assists in Wednesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has rebounded from a cool start to February with three assists over his last two games, but his pedestrian scoring average (0.44 points per game) shouldn't generate much excitement. Supporting cast scorers who don't supply much hits or PIM are a dime a dozen in most leagues.

2/10/2015

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Ends Slump

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Ends Slump

News: Chris Higgins picked up an assist in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Chris Higgins had been held off the scoresheet in February prior to Monday's helper. Though he's averaging 15:52 of ice time for the season, Higgins has dipped below 15 minutes five times in the Canucks' last eight games. With his role seemingly on the decline, enthusiasm for Higgins' fantasy prospects should be tempered.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins (Illness) To Play Saturday

News: Coach Willie Desjardins confirmed that Chris Higgins (illness) will play Saturday against the Flames.
Analysis: Chris Higgins was scratched from Thursday's game against the Panthers due to the flu, but was given clearance to play after he demonstrated improvement with his condition Friday. The second-liner has six goals, 11 assists and a plus-7 rating over 38 games on the campaign.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Expected Back Saturday

News: Chris Higgins (illness) is expected to play Saturday against the Flames.
Analysis: Chris Higgins wasn't on the ice for Friday's practice, so his availability for the game will likely hinge on his participation in Saturday's morning skate. The winger would likely reclaim a spot on the team's second line if declared fit to play Saturday.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Out Sick Thursday

News: Chris Higgins will miss Thursday's game against the Panthers with the flu, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Chris Higgins' absence will likely mean Linden Vey enters the lineup in his place. It's tough to put a timetable on the forward's return at this point, but his next chance will come Saturday against the Flames. His status for that game should receive an update prior to the opening faceoff.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Snipes Fifth Of Season

News: Chris Higgins potted his fifth goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has been very consistent this season, tallying five goals and 15 points in 23 games, to go with an impressive plus-11 rating. With the way he has shown chemistry with Nick Bonino on the second line, it's possible Higgins could put up 50 points for the first time in seven years.

Chris Higgins

Higgins Assists Twice For Canucks

News: Chris Higgins recorded the primary assists on both of Nick Bonino's third-period goals Tuesday in a win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: He's not a top scorer, but Chris Higgins chips in enough points to be a useful option in deeper formats, particularly if he can hold onto his spot on the second line.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks Getting Higgy With It

Chris Higgins

Canucks Getting Higgy With It

News: Chris Higgins dished out a pair of assists and was a plus-2 in Sunday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has heated up of late, recording a goal and five points in his last three games. He's looked great on the second line with Alex Burrows and Nick Bonino. Higgins isn't a top-end scorer, but he can deliver 20 goals with ease.

Canucks' Higgins Stuffs Scoresheet In Win

News: Chris Higgins opened the scoring just 41 seconds into the game, added an assist, went plus-2, notched a pair of penalty minutes and took six shots on goal in Thursday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: Chris Higgins was all over the scoresheet in this one -- a much-needed positive effort for him, as he'd picked up just a single point (a goal) in the season's first five games.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Could Land Top-Six Role

News: Chris Higgins finished the preseason with two goals and an assist in four games. He skated on the second line with Nick Bonino and Alex Burrows in Saturday's preseason finale against Edmonton.
Analysis: Chris Higgins was impressive in the preseason, using his wicked shot to find twine on two separate occasions. He is likely to slot in on Vancouver's second or third line this season, with second-unit power-play time a definite possibility. Higgins isn't anything special, but he should provide fantasy owners with decent goal and shot totals. His career-high 52 points came eight seasons ago with Montreal.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Nets First Preseason Goal

News: Chris Higgins netted his first goal of the preseason in Thursday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: It was an absolute snipe from Chris Higgins, who took a pass from former-Duck Nick Bonino before beating Flames' goalie Jonas Hiller high over the glove. Higgins scored 17 goals last season, but is expected to drop to Vancouver's third line in 2014-2015. Don't expect anything spectacular from Higgins, whose career-high 52 points came eight seasons ago with Montreal.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Out Saturday

News: Chris Higgins is sick and will not play in Saturday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: Chris Higgins wasn't previously known to be dealing with an illness, and he probably isn't a great bet to return for Sunday's season finale against the Flames. Unless he manages to play Sunday, Higgins will finish the season with 39 points (17 goals) in 78 games.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Has Gone Cold

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Has Gone Cold

News: Chris Higgins only has one point in his last 10 games and is minus-5 in that span.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has arguably been the most consistent forward on the Canucks this season, but this recent drought may put that claim in jeopardy. Higgins is known for shooting the puck, but he's only been credited with 20 shots on goal in his past 10 games. He has 17 goals and 39 points in 77 games, but is now a disappointing minus-14 on the year.

Chris Higgins

Higgins Productive In Vancouver Loss

News: Chris Higgins notched two assists in Friday's 4-3 loss to Washington, giving him four points in the last three games.
Analysis: Chris Higgins is having one of his most productive seasons in years by his standards, closing in on both 20 goals and 40 points for the struggling Canucks. The odds of Higgins posting two-point games constantly are limited, but he's going to see scoring chances for Vancouver.

3/11/2014

Chris Higgins

Two-Point Game For Canucks' Higgins

News: Chris Higgins finished with a goal and an assist in Monday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: The two points snapped a four-game scoreless skid for Chris Higgins, who has seen his production taper off dramatically along with his mates in recent weeks. He remains in a top-six role for the Canucks, but with Daniel Sedin out for the foreseeable future and Alexandre Burrows and Henrik Sedin noticing significant downturns in their production this season, it's hard to be optimistic about Higgins picking things up soon.
