Pens doing their due diligence on Higgins
Members of the Penguins scouting department continue their due diligence on potential targets of the Florida Panthers.
Pittsburgh is scouting the Panthers tonight for the second straight game and third time in Florida’s last four games.
Florida is in pure sell mode and the Penguins are said to be doing their due diligence on Chris Higgins and to a lesser extent Cory Stillman.
Higgins, 27, is a three time 20 goal scorer and has 10 goals and 11 assists on the season.
Stillman, 37, has 7 goals and 15 assists on the season. Scouts don’t see Stillman a fit at his age.
The Panthers are actively involved in trade talks through the league and are willing to deal core players, including Stephen Weiss.
