BOSTON -- The Bruins claimed forward Kaspars Daugavins off waivers from Ottawa on Wednesday morning. Daugavins will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season and has a salary-cap hit of $635,000 on his current deal.

The forward made headlines league-wide recently in a game with the Bruins on March 11 when he attempted a rather unique shootout attempt on Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, keeping the puck on the tip of his stick blade until he reached the net and then trying a spin-a-rama. Rask made the save, and the Bruins won 3-2.

In 19 games this season, the 24-year-old -- who was selected by the Senators in the third round of the 2006 NHL entry draft -- has a goal and two assists.
