Recently he has been promoted to Kesler's line. On a good team Higgins (at his best) is a deluxe grinder on a 3rd line. Plays the north-south game and can pot garbage goals. On an average team he's a support staff 2nd liner. Not that we need that exact type of player, but I believe he is back.
If we were looking for that 3rd line grinder that can pot 15 goals, would you take him back?
Higgins got into the party trouble scene. The question would be if he could stay out of it, Montreal has too good of a night life.
