Tuesday evening, Christopher Higgins registered three goals, good for a first hat trick in his career. The Montreal Canadiens blanked the Ottawa Senators by the score of 4-0.
The winger did not play in the early stages of the season because of a minor injury. But now he seems like he's going at 100%.
I picked him in my fantasy league last year and his production deceived me. But if it happens that he is on your fantasy roster for this current season, consider playing him more often now. Higgins' contract expires after this season and his best chance of getting a new and lucrative contract is to have good stats at the end of the year.
Higgins looked very alert against Ottawa and is definitly heating up. His complicity with Saku Koivu looks intact. The duo is lined up with Alex Tanguay who is also having a great start this year.
