Vancouver Canucks left wing Chris Higgins will return from a six-game absence for Wednesday's game against the Northwest Division rival Colorado Avalanche.

Higgins has been sidelined following the aftereffects of foot and hand infections.

The 28-year-old Higgins joked that since he lost an estimated 12 pounds after the adverse reaction to antibiotics that created flu-like symptoms, that he would have "a couple more desserts and it should be fine."

Higgins has collected 10 goals, 16 assists and 10 penalty minutes in 45 games this season.
