The Canucks placed Chris Higgins on waivers for purpose of buying him out.

Higgins had just three goals and one assist in 33 games with the Canucks last season before he was placed on waivers and sent to Utica (AHL), where he registered nine goals and four assists (13 points) in 22 games. The 33-year-old’s NHL career is likely over.

Higgins is expected to miss three weeks with a fractured foot.

Higgins suffered the injury while blocking a shot in Monday’s preseason game. This injury could open the door for the Canucks to give Brendan Gaunce a look for the first week or two of the season.

Higgins left Monday’s preseason game with a foot injury and did not return.

Higgins was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot at Tuesday’s morning skate, which is never a good sign. Higgins sustained the injury while blocking a Brenden Dillion slapshot. The Canucks have not released any information about the severity of Higgins’ injury, but wearing a walking boot isn’t a good sign for him being available to start the season.

Higgins only has mild knee strain. Hope to have him back before end of regular season. #Canucks

Higgins missed last night's game with a lower-body injury. The injury is now being described as a knee strain that will likely keep him out for the remainder of the season. It is safe to drop him.
