Kaspars Daugaviņš (born May 18, 1988) is a Latvian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing with SC Bern of the National League (NL). He previously played for HC Vityaz of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Daugaviņš has played professionally in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins. He was selected by the Senators in the third round, 91st overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

As a youth, Daugaviņš played in the 2002 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a team from Riga.

Professional

After the Majors failed to qualify for the playoffs in the 2006–07 season, the Ottawa Senators assigned Daugaviņš to the Binghamton Senators to finish the season. In 11 games with Binghamton, Daugaviņš had two goals, both coming against the Albany River Rats goaltender Tyler Weiman in a 5–4 Binghamton win. On June 1, 2007, Daugaviņš signed a three-year, entry level contract with the Ottawa Senators.

He spent the 2009–10 with Binghamton, scoring 21 goals and 46 points in 72 games as the team club failed to reach the playoffs. Daugaviņš also made his NHL debut on January 14, 2010, against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, going pointless in 8:26 of ice time in a 2–0 Ottawa victory.

Daugaviņš scored his first ever NHL goal on October 30, 2011, beating Jonas Gustavsson of the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 3–2 Ottawa victory. As the 2011–12 season progressed, Daugaviņš became a regular in the Ottawa lineup, playing 65 games and scoring five goals and six assists. In July 2012, he was scheduled for an arbitration hearing with the Senators, but the salary negotiation process was avoided when he agreed with the team to a one-year, one-way deal worth $635,000.

After his fifth season in the KHL and completing his third season with Torpedo Nizhny Novogorod in 2017–18, Daugaviņš left as a free agent to sign a two-year contract with his fourth KHL club, Spartak Moscow, on May 3, 2018.

After two productive seasons with Spartak, Daugaviņš left as a free agent, signing a one-year contract with HC Vityaz on May 3, 2020.

On June 10, 2021, Daugaviņš returned to the National League and signed a two-year deal with SC Bern.

Personal life

In 2013 he married Santa Seile at the Roman Catholic Church of Mary Magdalene, whom he met online.
