The Boston Bruins on Wednesday claimed off waivers Kaspars Daugavins, the player who tried to beat them just two weeks ago with an unusual shootout attempt.

The Ottawa Senators placed the 24-year-old Latvian on waivers Tuesday.

In 19 games with the Senators this season, Daugavins scored a goal and two assists, but he gained headlines on March 11 by attempting to drag the puck from mid-ice with the tip of his stick, and then spinning with his back to Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.

The attempt just missed going past the goal line, but Boston would ultimately prevail in the shootout.

"I'm lucky I got picked up and now I have a new team to work for," said Daugavins. "They're going to give it to me hard on that one [the shootout move]."

For his career, Daugavins has six goals and eight assists in 85 NHL games, to go along with 21 penalty minutes.

He was drafted in the third round of the 2006 NHL draft. That was just weeks after current Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli left the front office of the Senators, making him likely very familiar with the left wing even before the famous shootout.
