Brandon Davidson, A

Brandon Davidson is yet another surprising and exciting addition to the Oilers roster. He is an excellent, young defenseman who works great behind Klefbom and Sekera. He is quick, young and one who can triumph through anything. It is incredibly amazing to see him come back to the AHL OKC Barons from testicular cancer and become one of the best defensemen that the Oilers have in their lineup in the following year.

He is quick, speedy and knows how to play a smart game. He has two goals and three assists… and a plus-3 rating. His backcheck is outstanding, though it can fall apart at times, but he always improves on his play and knows how to play the game right.

A left-handed defender, Davidson has a quick, hard shot and the ability to create opportunities on the fly. Though a third-pairing defenseman, you can get a lot of ice time out of him and make use of him on the penalty kill. He is more than deserving of an A grade. Though he makes mistakes from time to time, he is still learning, and with his triumphs and obstacles, he is one of the strongest men in the Oilers lineup.
