Kaspars Daugavins won’t join Bruins until Tuesday at earliest
|03.30.13 at 6:50 pm ET|
The Bruins claimed former Senators forward Kaspars Daugavins on waivers Wednesday, but the 24-year-old has been unable to join the team because he has not been able to get his work visa. The wait will last until Tuesday at the earliest, his agent told WEEI.com Saturday.
The US Embassy is closed on Good Friday and the Monday following Easter, so the Bruins are working to get everything squared away for Tuesday, according to agent Jay Grossman. The Bruins will play Daugavins’ former club Tuesday night when they host the Senators at TD Garden.
In 19 games for Ottawa this season, Daugavins has one goal and two assists for three points and a minus-6 rating. He is known for his unorthodox shootout attempt against Tuukka Rask this season, though he is 1-for-4 in his NHL career in shootouts.
