I told you about Binghamton Sens player Kaspars Daugavins reportedly being bought out and heading to the KHL next year. I wanted to confirm the story, so I asked Bingo beat writer Joy Lindsay if she knew anything about it. She said she hadn't but she would look into it and she went straight to the source and asked Kaspars himself. This is what he had to say.
"They don't have to buy anything out. My contract expires after this year. I'm finishing the year here, and see what Ottawa offers me. I can't really say where I'll be next year because I don't know. If they offer me contract, and I like it, then I'll stay here and battle my way to NHL. If not, I'll go home."
So it appears the issue is up in the air and that it was his KHL rights that were purchased by Dinamo Riga from another club, Torpedo, should he eventually play in the KHL at some point. The option is still there at the end of the season, but for now nothing is 100%.
