Good morning everyone! I went to sleep with a smile on my face after a big Battle of Alberta win last night and woke up with an even bigger smile on my face. The Oilers have gone full circle and have officially claimed Brandon Davidson off of waivers from the Montreal Canadiens.
Speculation has been brewing in the last couple days after the Habs placed a struggling Brandon Davidson on waivers. Davy has only racked up one point in 13 games this year with the Canadiens and eventually must have seen this coming. After being traded to the Habs at the 2017 trade deadline for David Desharnais, Brandon Davidson has only put up three points in 23 games this year with his new squad.
Davidson gives Oilers a different option from Auvitu’s offensive risk taking style. More stay home shut down. Was well liked in the room.

But you know what? I couldn’t be happier that things didn’t work out for them. Davidson didn’t put up a lot of points for the Oilers during his tenure here, but he made an excellent depth defenseman for us. Now with struggles of our own defensive depth and injury woes, I can see Davidson replacing someone like Gryba in the lineup. Would you agree? As per Jason Gregor, the acquisition of Davidson now puts the Oilers at 49 total contracts.
On behalf of all Oiler fans, welcome back Davy!
