In a Canadian Press article in the Globe and Mail, Christopher Higgins says he believes he can be a 40-goal scorer in the NHL and hopes this could be his breakout season.
Higgins scored 23 goals as a rookie in 2005-06 and 22 last season despite missing 21 games with an ankle injury. Higgins has six goals through 14 games this season, including five in his last eight games.
“Playing the minutes I play and with the guys I’m with, I think I have enough skill so I could score 40. It’s a long season and it’ll take a lot of work and a couple of lucky bounces, but I think I have the talent to put up those kinds of numbers.”
