Kaspars Daugavins joined the Bruins Tuesday at TD Garden and participated in their warmup prior to their game against the Senators, though he was made a health scratch for the game.
The Bruins claimed Daugavins off waivers from the Senators last Wednesday, but he was unable to get his work visa until Tuesday. In 19 games for the Senators this season, Daugavins has one goal and two assists for three points.
‘I like him as a player. I think he’s got a lot of elements to his game and are consistent with or compatible with our game,” Peter Chiarelli said of Daugavins. “He’s smart, I think he’s skilled. For whatever reason, he wasn’t getting played a lot, or whatever, he didn’t fit there. Whatever, that’s fine. So we’ll see where he fits and he’s still a young player, so we’ll try to get him in and look at him and see where it goes.’
