Brandon Davidson is still unhappy on Matthew Tkachuk's opening night hit on him.
Davidson missed two months from an upper body injury after he was slew-footed by the rookie. "I was miserable for a long time over that," Davidson said. "It’s definitely a game I had circled on the calendar for a long time. It was a dirty play. It put a damper on things and put me behind the eight ball...He shot the puck, it went up off my stick and into the mesh (above the glass). The whistle blew, we skated three seconds to behind the net and it was a slew foot, you can clearly see from the video." The two teams battled Saturday for the first time but there were no incidents between Davidson and Tkachuk. Jan 15 - 8:41 AM

Brandon Davidson (upper body) is seven-ten days away from returning to the Oilers lineup.

The defenseman was slew footed by Matthew Tkachuk in the season opener and is now skating and looking forward to a return to the lineup. He had four goals and 11 points last season in 51 games so he has some offensive upside in very deep leagues.

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.
