Oilers lose Davidson after collision with Jets' Byfuglien

Chris Humphreys / USA TODAY Sports

The Edmonton Oilers will be without arguably their most reliable defender for the remainder of Sunday's game with the Winnipeg Jets, after Brandon Davidson was injured in a collision with Dustin Byfuglien.

Davidson was in considerable distress, and was unable to bear weight on his left leg when he exited the ice after staying down for several moments.

The Oilers didn't provide a specific update, only announcing that he would be unable to return to the contest.

Davidson, who signed a two-year extension earlier this week, has emerged as a key member of the Oilers' defensive corps since forcing his way into the lineup in late October.
