RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brandon Davidson.
Davidson doesn't possess the same level of upside of many young defensemen in the Edmonton system. He suited up in 12 games for the parent club last season, but didn't show enough to have a spot locked up for 2015-16. As a result, Davidson will likely begin the season with AHL Bakersfield before joining the Oilers when injuries open up opportunities. Over the long haul, he projects as a bottom-pair or seventh defenseman.
The weakest part of the Oiler's team is their defense and while Davidson could be a part of the solution at some point in the future, that future won't be this season. He projects as a bottom-pair defenseman, so he'll be waiver wire fodder for most of his career.
