Brandon Davidson took part in Monday's practice.

The Islanders acquired Davidson from Edmonton on Saturday in exchange for a third-round pick. Davidson also played for Montreal earlier this season and is motivated to now be on a squad that has a shot at a playoff spot. "Being on two teams that kind of weren’t in the position that we are now, I think it’s definitely motivation to kind of elevate my game," Davidson said. "I know there’s a good opportunity for me to play a lot of minutes, to play my game. I’m kind of a stay-at-home defenseman. I know that the help on the [penalty kill] will be helpful, too. I’m going to do my job and I think that I can help for sure."

It would have been pretty surprising if Davidson had been ready to play that quickly given that the Islanders only acquired him from Edmonton Saturday afternoon. After this though, the Islanders are off until Wednesday, so that's probably enough time for him to meet up with the Islanders and get settled in enough to debut.
