Former Pats Captain to Undergo Cancer Treatment

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Edmonton Oilers have announced former Regina Pats Captain, Brandon Davidson has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

“All the characteristics that Brandon showed while he was here as our captain is why we all have faith he will overcome this battle,” says Pats President Brent Parker.  “I know first-hand some of the challenges Bandon will face, but knowing his character he will meet them head on as he has always done. The thoughts and prayers of our entire organization are with Brandon and his family at this time.”

Davidson will undergo immediate treatment at The Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center on the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center campus in downtown Oklahoma City. The Oklahoma City Barons and Edmonton Oilers ask that Davidson’s privacy be respected at this time. The club will provide updates regarding his health as they become available.
