The Sabres Observer

Jay Grossman, who represents Latvian forward Kaspars Daugavins, told me today his client wants back in the NHL and confirmed that the Sabres are amongst his options.
Daugavins has 18 goals and 44 points in 44 games with Geneve-Servette of the Swiss Elite League this season, and was a member of the Latvian Olympic team coached by Ted Nolan.
"He's having a great year and is looking at a return to the NHL," said Grossman. "Time will tell."
Yesterday, a Swiss reporter speculated that Buffalo could pursue Daugavins as an addition to their roster for the 2014-15 season.
Daugavins was a 3rd-round selection of the Ottawa Senators in the 2006 draft. He has 6 goals in 91 career NHL games with Ottawa and Boston.
