In all seriousness he's on an IV and in some legit pain. Swollen hand and it's hurting spending night in hospital.

Thanks for the update! Send well wishes from all of the Canucks' fans. Hope he is better soon.

Chris has been one of our best and most consistent forwards this year. I never expected him to be this good when we first traded for him...such a pleasant surprise.

Not to take anything away from Higgins, as I totally agree, but I think Lapierre has a strong case as well.

That's freaking weird...infection jumped from foot to hand? I guess some people are just more susceptible to these types of things.

Its not that uncommon, Staph (staphyloccocus) is a blood bourne infection and its more probable that he didn't wipe out the bacteria with antibiotics completely before. Staph is actually present in your nose as well. Its likely that he had a small cut on his hand and the bacteria manifested from the sweat and other contaminents present.

Get better Higgins, you're a beast.

I had a nasty staph infection last spring. As in bad enough to be nearly hospitalized as well. I felt sluggish and slow and awful for about 3 days before it manifested itself as a massive swollen infection on my right side, and it took weeks to get rid of, antibiotics, constant draining and all that good stuff. I hope Higgins is able to recover fast, not just because the Canucks need him, but because that kind of illness/injury is awful to have to deal with.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this his THIRD bacterial infection?
If it is, I guess some people are just more susceptible to theses infections then others.
Get well soon Chris.

If he had to be out its good that its something he has dealt with before & VERY good that our medical staff knows the antibiotics to help along the process.

Sounds bad...
What the hell? Kind of a strange re-occurring injury. Is he banging meth in the DTES or some other sordid activity that makes one prone to staph infections?

Not trying to be snippy, but staph infections aren't predominently caused by lack of cleanliness or hygiene or even drug use. Being an athlete and constently dealing with cuts are bound to cause infections now and then.

Remember in 2003 when Mikael Renberg, then with the Leafs, almost faced amputation or worse due to an infection that started in his finger?

Hope Higgins gets healthy soon!

Hansen is getting a lot of recognition this year for his good play... how could he be the unsung hero?

The best place to catch a staph infection is a hospital. Anybody coming from a hospital is covered with the stuff, that's why there are handwash stations everywhere.

When it comes back like that, they just try different antibiotics. All staph infections are thought to be resistant to antibiotics, now.

His equipment has been getting cleaned with special soap and he thinks the antibiotics might not have wiped infection out completely. KnOw more today. Surgery might have to happen. Let's hope not.

That's where I got it. And that exactly why I'm holding off on getting the second hip done.

I really hope for Chris' well-being that the staph isn't a strain of MRSA. Its been a major problem in hospitals over the few years. He's one of my favourite players, and I'm sure he's a great guy too. It sucks to see someone in that kind of pain but he should take some relief in the fact Vancouver has some of the best surgeons in the country and if it comes down to a palmar fasciotomy or irrigation and debridement, he's in the best hands possible.

Good news on Higgins. Hopefully they can eradicate all of the infection this time around.

AV: Higgins spent night in hospital and is feeling better. Responding well to antibiotics. Will get further update tomorrow.
