Everyone happy for once.

With the McDavid extension perhaps being the exception, I can’t remember a time where Oiler fans were in such agreement on a particular move by the Oilers.

Today at 10 AM EST, it was announced that the Oilers had claimed Brandon Davidson from the Montréal Canadiens. Edmonton was third in line on the waiver wire, which meant that Davidson had to pass both Arizona and Buffalo.

In and out of the lineup for Montréal this season, Davidson was held out of the previous three games for the Canadiens before being placed on waivers. He has one assist in sixteen contests with the Habs.

Slain B.C. officer remembered as dedicated, funny

  Slain B.C. officer remembered as dedicated, funny ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - An Abbotsford, B.C., police constable killed in the line of duty was remembered as dedicated and caring, a man who had a gut-busting sense of humour and a dislike for guns. Thousands of officers and first responders jammed into Abbotsford Centre on Sunday while members of the public filed into spill-over centres for the celebration of life for 53-year-old Const. John Davidson. His police partner, Const. Renae Williams, described Davidson as a man with a sense of humour who took far longer to get coffees because staff at the coffee shop couldn't understand his thick Scottish accent.

Defenceman Brandon Davidson is coming back to the Edmonton Oilers after the team claimed him off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens. The Oilers announced the move Sunday after hanging on to beat the Flames Saturday night in Calgary.

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.

Davidson is a very good candidate to draw in at the 3LD position. There’s a good chance that he’ll pair with The Son Of A Bull Rider™ on Wednesday’s game against the Flyers. The (re-)arrival of Davidson likely pushes a defenceman down to Bakersfield this week, my guess is that it’s probably Yohann Auvitu.

The Oilers might not be done making moves yet, as Saturday’s performance from Laurent Brossoit may have them in the market for a journeyman netminder. Up 6-1 with only a portion of the third period remaining, the club escaped Calgary with a 7-5 win. Laurent Brossoit picked up his first win of the season, the Oilers got out of Calgary with two points, but the Flames made it way more interesting than it should have been by potting four goals in seven minutes. Brossoit’s SV% is holding at .872%, and the Oilers will definitely need more consistent netminding if they’re going to remain competitive while Cam Talbot recovers from an upper body injury.
