Oilers’ Brandon Davidson leaves game after colliding with Byfuglien

Brandon Davidson had to leave the game after this huge collision with Dustin Byfuglien in front of the Oilers net.

Edmonton Oilers defenceman Brandon Davidson has left Sunday’s game against Winnipeg with an undisclosed injury and won’t return after colliding with Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien.

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.
