I think he can play both LW and RW, but to me he is a hair better on the RW side.

Either way if you are gonna put Higgins and Sergei on the same line, in my mind its quite obvious that Higgins is much worse moving to the Right side than Sergei is.
It doesn't really matter anyways, he can play both well and simply adapt to what the situation needs.
