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 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 (lower-body) is expected to play on Saturday.
Higgins has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but it looks like he will be back in tomorrow vs. the Maple Leafs. Higgins had a three-game point streak (1G / 2A) going before he was hurt.
Higgins (lower-body) will be out "a while."
Higgins missed Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury and it was announced this afternoon that he will be out for an extended period of time. Brandon McMillan and Ronalds Kennins will likely alternate playing time with Higgins out.

Higgins has been out since April 8th and probably won't be back until the playoffs but this is encouraging news.
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.
