Davies, has been recalled by the Sabres before but has yet to make his debut for the club. He’s spent most of the year with their AHL affiliate in Rochester, where he has five points in 19 games. Davies has played in a top-four role in Rochester and is used in a supporting role on both special teams units.
Originally a New Jersey Devils late-round pick, Davies turned pro with the Nashville Predators after a three-year collegiate career at Northeastern University. Over the course of three seasons in the Predators organization, Davies got into 22 NHL games, scoring three assists.
Last year Davies spent the bulk of his time with the Predators’ AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, scoring 31 points in 54 games. That was a performance that earned him a $750k one-year, two-way deal with the Sabres this summer. Davies will be an arbitration-eligible restricted free agent at the end of the season.
