Canucks put Chris Higgins on waivers

Winger Chris Higgins has been placed on waivers by the Vancouver Canucks.

What It Means:

If Higgins clears waivers, he will head to the minors. He has just three points (two goals, one assist) in 25 games played this season.

In addition to the lack of point production, Higgins' possession stats are poor as well. His Corsi For Percentage is just 44.8 -- the lowest of his career -- and his Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is not much better at -3.9. Before being placed on waivers, we projected Higgins to tally another eight points (three goals, five assists) over the remaining course of the season. The 11 total points would be a career low in any season in which he played more than 14 games.
