Observations

September 2019 – Davidsson joins the Belleville roster this season in his rookie AHL year and he looks to lock down a top-six role. His preseason has gone well thus far and he seems to be on track for what the Senators’ organization expects of him. As a 22-year-old, he will should be good at the AHL level and push for an NHL spot later this season or in training camp a year from now. Tony Ferrari

June 2019 – Davidsson finished off his season with Djurgardens IF of the SHL amassing 21 points in 37 games. He showed some nice signs of growth this season and could be poised to make the jump to Belleville next season. If he does, he figures to play a prominent role on a team that will have several players graduating to Ottawa. If his development can continue the same trajectory, Ottawa could have themselves a responsible middle-six winger in the next couple seasons. Jordan Deshane

February 2019 – Davidsson has maintained a steady pace this season in Djurgardens. Although not putting up spectacular numbers, he continues to grow positively and is increasing his ratio of goals to assists. He will look to make the jump to Belleville next year. That will prove to be a major test in determining if he can increase his bulk and speed to progress at the pro level. At this point, don’t expect to see him in the Ottawa Senators lineup for at least two years. Jordan Deshane

February 2019 – Davidsson has been traded from Columbus to Ottawa in the Duchene deal.  Jokke Nevalainen

November 2018 – Davidsson has been loaned to Djurgardens IF of the SHL to start the 2018-2019 season. Through seven games, he has registered five points. He is a strong skater with a quick first step, very good acceleration and above average top end speed even while playmaking. He needs to get stronger, improve his balance, and his defensive game and positioning if he wants to play in the NHL . He signed an entry level contract with the Blue Jackets this past May so he is expected to help the big club soon. Expect a year of improvement in the SHL before coming to North America in 2019-2020 where he will compete for a middle-six role. Frank Pellegrini

 

December 2017 – With seven goals and seven assists in 27 contests, Davidsson’s production has picked up as he’s currently tied for third in goals and fifth in total points on the Djurgardens IF roster. In his first full year (thus far) in the SHL, Davidsson earned BlueJackets.com’s First Star of the Week honors as top organizational prospect in mid-December. Kevin Wickersham

October 2017 – Davidsson is off to a similar start as last year with Djurgardens IF, averaging an indentical 0.27 points per game (two goals and an assist in 11 games). As one of the youngest skaters on a veteran squad, Davidsson’s minutes aren’t all that plentiful as of yet. Expect an uptick in scoring as the season progresses and he continues to establish himself. Kevin Wickersham 

August 2017 – The older brother of 2017 Sabres’ second round choice Marcus Davidsson, Jonathan was selected this June in his third year of eligibility. The two spent increasingly longer stints with Djurgardens IF of the Swedish Hockey League over the past two campaigns after successful runs in the SuperElit ranks where Jonathan exceeded a point-per-game pace over portions of five seasons (1.07 in 89 games). His 2016-17 offensive work in the adult SHL was also impressive, registering three goals and nine assists as a 19-year-old. While he’s proven a cerebral and aware playmaker with a hard and accurate shot, Davidsson doesn’t have much of a physical presence and his defense is considered below average. Look for him to develop in these areas while spending another year or two Sweden before jumping the pond. Kevin Wickersham
