Chris Higgins is sporting a walking boot on his right foot.

He blocked a shot in Monday's preseason win over San Jose and didn't play in the third period. There is no timetable yet for him, but this may not bode well for his status entering the regular season. That could open the door for Jake Virtanen and/or Brendan Gaunce.

Chris Higgins appeared to suffer an ankle injury in the second period of Monday's preseason game.

Higgins didn't take play in the third period. Given the low-stakes nature of the game, it could have just been a precautionary move, but for now we're erring on the side of caution and listing him as day-to-day.

Higgins has 12 goals and 36 points in 77 games in 2014-15. That's similar to what he did in 2013-14, which is what we were hoping for from him. At this point, what you see is what you get from the 31-year-old forward.

It was only the fourth goal of the season for the Canucks second power play unit and that has to be pretty scary to most Vancouver fans. It was Higgins second power play goal of the season. He now has 11 goals and 33 points and a plus-eight rating.

Chris Higgins' status for Saturday's game against San Jose is still in doubt.

Higgins left Friday's practice early but no reason was given for the early departure. The 31-year-old didn't take part in the morning skate on Saturday either, so it's entirely possible that he sits out tonight.

Chris Higgins had a goal and assist in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Buffalo on Friday.

Higgins' goal was a classic one-timer from the dot, making it 4-2 in the third period. But it was his helper on Yannick Weber's goal just 1:43 into the second that was gorgeous. Higgins was trapped between a back-checking Matt Ellis and defending Tyler Myers below the left hashmark, and had to wait for Myers to move his stick out of the passing lane before dishing it to a charging Weber down the right slot. The goal made it 2-1 and was a true display of awareness and patience. Canucks. Higgins is now sixth on the team in scoring with seven goals and 20 points this season.
