BOSTON (CBS) — Earlier this month, Kaspars Daugavins drew the attention of the whole hockey world for his wild and crazy shootout attempt against the Bruins. It appears as though Peter Chiarelli took notice, too.

On Wednesday, the Bruins claimed Daugavins off waivers.

The 24-year-old forward was placed on waivers on Tuesday by the Senators, who have not been able to give Daugavins regular playing time this season. Daugavins has played in 19 games this year, scoring one goal (against Boston) and adding two assists to go with a minus-7 rating. He posted 5-6-11 totals in 65 games last season. He does average 2:07 of short-handed time on ice per game, up from 1:58 last season.

Daugavins is making just $635,000 this season and will be a restricted free agent at season’s end.

Daugavins’ unique shootout attempt against Boston ultimately failed to beat Tuukka Rask and brought a lot of criticism upon him, but it didn’t draw any animosity from the Bruins.
