The Blackhawks placed Davidson (leg) on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 13 on Friday. Chicago has yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for Davidson's return, but he'll miss the team's next two games at a minimum now that he's been moved to IR. The 27-year-old blueliner's absence will test the Blackhawks' depth at defense, but it shouldn't affect many fantasy lineups, as his lack of offensive upside and unpredictable role keep him from being a viable option in all but the deepest of formats.
Davidson (leg) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blues. Davidson has only tallied one assist while posting a minus-4 rating in seven appearances this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups. With Davidson unavailable, look for Gustav Forsling or Brandon Manning to draw into the lineup against St. Louis.
Davidson won't practice Tuesday due to a leg injury. Davidson's absence from practice leaves his status for Wednesday's game against the Blues up in the air. If he's unable to go, Brandon Manning or Gustav Forsling will likely take his spot in the lineup against St. Louis
Davidson is expected to make his Blackhawks debut Saturday against Columbus, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports. Davidson inked a one-year contract with Chicago after impressing during training camp while on a professional tryout offer, but he's been relegated to the press box for the first six games of the campaign. The 27-year-old blueliner is expected to skate with Jan Rutta on the bottom pair against the Blue Jackets.
Davidson signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Thursday that will net him $650,000. Davidson initially signed a professional tryout offer with Chicago in hopes of this outcome, and now the 27-year-old blueliner will provide some depth at a position of weakness last season. From a fantasy perspective, Davidson doesn't possess a ton of upside having collected just seven points over 51 games between three different NHL teams last season.
