Matt Henderson: Oilers Send Two Down, Oilers Fans Sent To Therapy

ROSTER MOVES The Edmonton Oilers sent farmhand Brandon Davidson down to the OKC Barons today along with Dennis Grebeshkov who will be on a conditioning stint with the AHL club.

#15 Prospect: Brandon Davidson

Winter 2011: #15Summer 2011: #16Winter 2010: #18Summer 2010: NRBrandon Davidson is a 20-year old playing junior hockey.
