Sharks Sign Defenseman Rob Davison

SAN JOSE, California - San Jose Sharks (@sanjosesharks) Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed defenseman Rob Davison to a one-year contract.

In 2012-13 Davison played 53 games with EC Red Bull Salzburg in the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga, the highest-level men’s ice hockey league in Austria. He posted nine points (three goals, six assists) and 54 penalty minutes with the club.

During 2011-12 Davison split time between Red Bull Salzburg and HC Ocelari Trinec in the Czech Extraliga, playing a combined 33 games between the two clubs. He registered seven points (one goal, six assists) and 47 penalty minutes in these games.

Prior to playing in Europe Davison enjoyed seven years in the NHL that began when he was selected by San Jose at the 1998 NHL Draft. Davison played in 176 games for the Sharks from 2002-03 to 2007-08, registering 14 points (two goals, 12 assists), a +2 rating, and 238 penalty minutes. Furthermore, Davison was part of the 2003-04 Sharks team that advanced to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.

On Feb. 26, 2008 Davison was traded to the New York Islanders in exchange for a seventh round selection (186th overall) at the 2008 NHL Draft, a pick the Sharks used to select defenseman Jason Demers.

In 219 career NHL games with the New Jersey Devils, Vancouver Canucks, New York Islanders, and San Jose, the 33 year-old Davison has posted 18 points (three goals, 15 assists), and 321 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-three, 220-pound native of St. Catherines, Ontario was originally selected by San Jose in the fourth round (98th overall) of the 1998 NHL Draft.
