Blues' Matthew Highmore: Signs with St. Louis

Signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Blues on Thursday. Highmore drew into 46 games with the Canucks last season, picking up five goals and 12 points while averaging 12:42 of ice time per contest. The two-way nature of Highmore's deal with St. Louis suggests he'll likely be bouncing between the AHL and the NHL in 2022-23.

Matthew Highmore: Bound for free agency

Will test the free-agent market Wednesday following Vancouver's decision to not give him a qualifying offer. Highmore logged a career-high 46 games this season in addition to setting new personal bests in goals (five), assists (seven) and shots (61). Despite his decent production, it seems the Canucks aren't sold on Highmore who should be capable of landing a bottom-six role somewhere in the league. If he can be an 82-game player, Highmore should be capable of pushing for the 25-point mark.

Matthew Highmore had a rocky season and now finds himself an RFA that the Canucks should bring back

Matthew Highmore’s entire career could best be described as a rollercoaster. The Halifax, Nova Scotia product provides the Canucks with a unique toolkit of speed, grit, and an unbelievable work ethic. One of Highmore’s biggest assets is his speed though, and throughout his major-junior career, he used that to become a top goalscorer with the Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL.

Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Downgraded to week-to-week

(upper body) is now considered week-to-week according to coach Bruce Boudreau, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Based on his timeline, Highmore figures to miss at least the next three matches for the club due to his upper-body issue. Prior to his absence, the 26-year-old recorded just one point in his last 12 contests while registering just 15 shots. Recent call-up William Lockwood figures to continue deputizing in Highmroe's stead.

Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Unavailable against Stars

Is dealing with an upper-body injury and will miss Saturday's clash with Dallas, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Highmore was labeled day-to-day by coach Bruce Boudreau, so it doesn't seem like he will be out for an extended period of time. William Lockwood is set to make his season debut with Highmore unavailable. Prior to his injury, Highmore managed just one point in his last 12 appearances, and he's unlikely to offer more than mid-range fantasy value once given the all-clear.

Canucks' Matthew Highmore: Spoils shutout Saturday

Scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames, but he also received medical attention late in the game, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Highmore's goal spoiled Dan Vladar's bid for a shutout Saturday, and it was the forward's first point in his last nine games. He was seen being attended to on the bench, though it's unclear what injury he could be nursing heading into Sunday's game versus the Sabres. The 26-year-old has 10 points, 44 shots on net, 38 hits and a plus-2 rating through 36 appearances this season.
