Feb 4 - 6:09 PM

Brandon Davidson (undisclosed) will probably be back on Thursday.

That's not set in stone though and obviously Davidson needs to be taken off of the injured reserve list before that can happen. Davidson hasn't played since Jan. 21.
Feb 4 - 12:15 PM

Brandon Davidson sustained an undisclosed injury during Thursday's game.

We don't know much about Davidson's ailment, but he has been placed on the injured reserve list. Edmonton only has one game left until the All-Star break and it's on Saturday, so he'll at least miss that contest.
Jan 22 - 12:02 PM

Brandon Davidson logged 18:51 minutes in his return to the Oilers' lineup on Thursday.

Davidson was sidelined for a little under two weeks due to a ribs injury. He has two goals and three assists in 24 contests in 2015-16.
Jan 1 - 10:59 AM

Brandon Davidson (ribs) will be back in the lineup Thursday

He is going to pair with Brad Hunt, who will play in his second game of the season, because Eric Gryba is out due to injury. Davidson has been sidelined since Dec. 19 after his ribs were hurt.

Brandon Davidson (ribs) might be available on Thursday.

Davidson took part in Wednesday's practice. He's missed four games due to the injury. "Things have progressed fairly quick for the most part and I’m excited to get back out there and help out," Davidson said. He has two goals and five points in 23 contests in 2015-16.

The Edmonton Oilers have placed Brandon Davidson on IR with an injury to his ribs.

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.

Brandon Davidson (ribs) will miss Monday's game.

Davidson was hurt when he was cross-check from Blake Comeau during Saturday's contest. The plan is to re-evaluate him after the Christmas break.

Brandon Davidson suffered a ribs injury during Saturday's game.

Davidson absorbed a cross-check from Blake Comeau in the third period of that contest. Edmonton didn't practice on Sunday, so we still don't know a lot about Davidson's condition, but the Oilers have recalled defenseman Mark Fayne.

Andrew Ference and Brandon Davidson will be scratches when the Oilers host the Bruins Wednesday night.

Ference continues to sit. Davidson was told to get an apartment and considered a piece of the solution with the Oilers. He requires waivers to be sent to the AHL making it risky to be waived without being claimed.

Brandon Davidson has two goals and four points in 15 games this season.

Davidson has spent some time in the press box so far this season and it certainly wouldn't be surprising to see him be scratched occasionally throughout the remainder of the campaign. He didn't do much offensively in the minors and we don't expect him to be a major contributor in that regard going forward.

Brandon Davidson scored on the power play Saturday.

It was the second game in a row that Davidson has found the back of the net and this bodes well for the 24-year-old defenseman who has two points in five NHL games. He has never been a points producer in professional hockey so this could just be an aberration.

Brandon Davidson scored his second career goal in Edmonton's brilliant comeback 4-3 victory over Montreal on Thursday.

Davidson ripped a beauty through a heavy screen to cut the deficit to 3-2 early on in the third period. It was a tally that clearly energized not just the Oilers, but Rexall Place, helping spur on the momentous victory.

Brandon Davidson will suit up in place of Andrew Ference on Sunday against the Kings.

This is a prime opportunity for the 24-year-old defender Davidson, but he's yet to show us that he's a fantasy contributor to any degree. So feel free to look elsewhere for depth support.
