Brandon Davidson's undisclosed injury might prove to be a serious knee problem.

Brandon Davidson has agreed to a two-year, $2.85 million extension with the Edmonton Oilers.

This is Davidson's first one-way deal. He's logged big minutes for Edmonton, but his value to fantasy owners is limited. He has four goals and 10 points in 47 contests this season.

Brandon Davidson is emerging as one of the Oilers best defensemen.

Davidson has been a rock on the blueline and scouts have been impressed with his play this season. The defenseman was drafted in the sixth round in 2010 but has surpassed most on the Oilers depth chart. "I didn’t have the foot-speed or the size I do now," Davidson said. "I think I was 191 pounds. I’m 25 pounds heavier than that now, a big difference going from a boy to a man. And over the years, I developed my legs," he said. "I was disappointed as the draft day went on, though. I’d been told I’d maybe fit in as a third-round pick but when I got the phone call that the Oilers had taken me, it’s still one of the happiest days of my life." Davidson is not a stud offensively as he has three goals and seven points in 43 games this season.

Ouch, that'll make life overly annoying with every breath for a while. The 24-year-old defender had been making strong headway as a regular on the blue line prior to the injury. Through 23 games Davidson has compiled five points, 12 PIMs, 32 blocks, and 35 hits. Not exactly fantasy worthy but a nice start to a career. Brad Hunt has been recalled in his place.
