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.

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.

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.

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.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Assists Kesler In Loss To Wild

News: Chris Higgins picked up an assist on Ryan Kesler's shorthanded goal in Friday's shootout loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Dating back to before the Olympic break, Chris Higgins now has three points in his last four games. Higgins has produced decently this season, collecting 34 points in 60 games, but could lose some fantasy value if linemate Kesler gets traded.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Set To Return

News: Chris Higgins (undisclosed) is slated to return to action Thursday against Montreal.
Analysis: Chris Higgins, who did not play Tuesday against the Bruins, checks back into the Vancouver lineup Thursday with 31 points in 56 games to date.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Out Tuesday

News: Chris Higgins (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Bruins, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Despite seeing a relatively typical 18:14 of ice time in Monday's loss to the Red Wings, Chris Higgins apparently attained an injury at some point during the game and will not be available Tuesday. The newly-recalled Pascal Pelletier takes his place in the lineup.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Excelling On Top Line

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Excelling On Top Line

News: Chris Higgins potted his 15th goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has done well since being bumped up to the top line, tallying six points (3G 3A) in his last six games. He has 31 points in 54 games and is currently on pace for his best offensive season since 2007-08. With some key injuries in the lineup, Higgins should continue to put up solid totals in a top-six role.

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal and added two assists against the Coyotes on Sunday. He was also a plus-3.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Ends Goal Drought

News: Chris Higgins ended a six-game goal drought on Thursday, scoring the lone Canucks goal in a 2-1 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: The entire team has struggled offensively as of late, and Chris Higgins is no exception, collecting only five points in his last 13 games. Despite the recent goal drought, Higgins has remained fairly consistent this season, never going more than four games without registering a point. He averages 1:39 of power-play time per game, but is yet to register a power-play point, as all of his 13 goals and 27 points have come at even-strength.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Strong In Loss

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's shootout loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Chris Higgins spent Tuesday's game on a new-look second line that also featured Zack Kassian and Ryan Kesler. Higgins now has three points in his last three games and is up to 25 points in 44 games on the season. He isn't spectacular in terms of production, but has been quite consistent this season, never going more than four games without registering a point.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Out With Flu Sunday

News: Chris Higgins missed Sunday's game against Anaheim with the flu, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Though Chris Higgins missed Sunday's game, he is likely to suit up Tuesday against Pittsburgh. After going on a tear in early December, Higgins has cooled down lately, collecting only one point in his last six games.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Returns To Lineup Tuesday

News: Chris Higgins (illness) will return to the ice for the Canucks on Tuesday against the Penguins, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has been an efficient scorer for the Canucks this season with 23 points in 43 games. He missed Sunday's game against the Ducks due to the flu, but appears to have turned the corner to play Tuesday.

Canucks' Higgins Scores Against Stars

News: Chris Higgins scored the lone Canucks goal in a 4-1 loss to the Stars on Thursday.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has been tearing it up lately and now has collected four goals and eight points over his past seven games. He continues to light it up alongside Ryan Kesler on the second line. Keep rolling him.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Scores In Blowout Victory

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal for the second straight game in Saturday's blowout win over Boston. He now has three goals and seven points over his past five games.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has developed some great chemistry with Ryan Kesler on the second line and now has 21 points in 35 games on the season. Both of Higgins' past two goals have been assisted by Kesler. You can't go wrong with Higgins right now as him and Kesler are a prime reason why the Canucks have won seven straight games.

Chris Higgins, LW, VAN Canucks' Higgins Scores Goal In Friday's Win

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Scores Goal In Friday's Win

News: Chris Higgins scored his ninth goal of the season during the Canucks' 4-0 win over the Oilers on Friday.
Analysis: Chris Higgins now has six points (two goals, four assists) in his last four games and he now has nine goals and 11 assists on the season. He's already way ahead of last year's goal pace and actually is on pace to reach the 20-goal level for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

News: Chris Higgins picked up two helpers for the second straight game Monday versus the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Chris Higgins has five points in his last three games and is plus-5 in that time. With 19 points and a plus-4 rating in total this year, he's been a reliable option for deeper formats.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Collects Two Assists

News: Chris Higgins picked up a pair of assists and was plus-3 in a win over Colorado on Sunday.
Analysis: He now has points in consecutive games and is proving to be a surprisingly consistent fantasy option for deeper formats, with eight goals and 15 points in 31 games this season. He'll continue to put up points playing on the second line with Ryan Kesler. Chris Higgins isn't spectacular, but at least you know what you're getting with him.

Canucks' Higgins Tallies OT Game-Winner

News: Chris Higgins' eighth goal of the season was the overtime game-winner as the Canucks beat the Coyotes 3-2 on Friday.
Analysis: The Canucks blew a two-goal lead in the third period to see the game get pushed into overtime. Chris Higgins created a turnover back in his own zone and then flew down the left side of the ice and pumped home the game-winner past Mike Smith on the far side. The 30-year-old wing now has eight goals and seven assists through 31 games this season.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Collects Third Point In Four Games

News: Chris Higgins collected an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Kings on Monday. He now has three points over his past four games.
Analysis: He continues to be a fairly consistent fantasy play this season, collecting seven goals and 13 points in 26 games on the year. He hasn't registered a power-play point yet this season, but played a season-high 4:45 with the man advantage on Monday.

Canucks' Higgins Ends Four-Game Scoring Slump

News: Chris Higgins ended a four-game scoring drought on Tuesday, scoring his seventh goal of the season and going plus-2 in a 3-2 loss to Florida.
Analysis: Chris Higgins also contributed with three shots on goal and three hits. The Canucks' offense has dried up lately, and Higgins has been no exception, going pointless in his last four games before Tuesday. Higgins has been fairly consistent this year though, logging 11 points in 23 games and firing an impressive 82 shots on goal.

Canucks' Higgins Is Getting Hot

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal and assisted on another in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Thursday.
Analysis: Chris Higgins is heating up as of late and now has three goals and five points over his past six games. He saw 18:53 of ice time on the second line Thursday and is seeing solid power play time. Higgins also contributed with three shots on goal and four hits. He is a safe bet right now.

Canucks' Higgins Scores Fifth Of Season

News: Chris Higgins scored his fifth goal of the season in a 4-0 win over Toronto on Saturday.
Analysis: Chris Higgins also put four shots on goal and saw a respectable 19:59 of ice time. Higgins now has 53 shots on goal in 16 games this season and has collected eight points (five goals, three assists) on the year.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Scores Fourth Goal In Seven Games

News: Chris Higgins scored his fourth goal of the season during the Canucks' 3-2 overtime win against the Blues on Friday.
Analysis: After a slow opening six games of the seasons, Chris Higgins has really caught fire lately with all four of his goals coming in the last seven games. With only six total points on the season, he is just heating up. So long as he stays healthy, Higgins can be a decent contributor for you as a supporting role player.

Chris Higgins

Canucks' Higgins Tallies Against Islanders

News: Chris Higgins scored a goal, fired six shots on net, dished out four hits, and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory over the Islanders. He now has three goals over his past five games.
Analysis: Chris Higgins is heating up of late and playing on the top line doesn't hurt his cause. Higgins is now 30 years old, and doesn't exhibit much potential. We always know he will collect around 40 points. He may be worth a look though while he plays on this top line as he could put up bigger numbers than usual.
