Midway through the first period, Byfuglien cut in front of the Edmonton net, and ran into Davidson, whose left leg took on much of the impact. Byfuglien received a two-minute minor for high-sticking on the play.
Davidson, 24, has played in 50 games this year, scoring four goals and 11 points. He was a sixth-round pick (162nd overall) in 2010.
He recently signed a two-year extension with the Oilers worth $2,850,000.
