Canucks exploring trade options for Higgins

The Vancouver Canucks took an unusual step on Sunday to try and drum up interest in forward Chris Higgins.

GM Jim Benning issued a statement to the media “confirming” the Canucks are “exploring trade options,” despite the fact Higgins’ name never really percolated in trade rumours. It was more or less a public plea for any team to take Higgins off of Vancouver’s hands – something rarely if ever seen in NHL circles.
