Higgins can be described as the type of defender that is fairly quiet but effective. You won’t see him constantly rushing up with the puck to create offense, as he is a two-way minded defender always having defense as his first priority. He is extremely responsible on the back end and utilizes his puck moving skills very well. With great vision both offensively and defensively he is the perfect quarterback on every play. Although Higgins possesses the core skills to maintain consistent success in his form of gameplay, he could grow on an entirely new level with speed development. If he develops further skill on his overall speed, agility, and reaction time, he would receive massive dividends. Amplifying those elements in his game would have teams turning heads to have him added into their organizations. With the smart plays he makes day-in and day-out, if he added that explosive element he would become a sure nuisance for all opponents. With the 2023 draft fast approaching Higgins is one of the top-six draft eligible defenseen from the QMJHL, and I believe we could see him selected around the mid-to-late third round.
