Daugavins is not a skill player in the NHL. He does a good job of playing his role for Ottawa and kills penalties well. Maybe on Riga he'd be a top 6 player, but his game is best suited to a grinder role. He's not the goal scorer he was in junior. His game has matured and he's become a bottom 6 guy who can contribute occasionally on the scoreboard, while killing penalties and checking hard.
