After playing four seasons with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League, Davidson made his professional debut with the Sabres' AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans.

During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Davidson went to Germany to join the DEG Metro Stars of the Deutsche Eishockey League. While the NHL resumed play in 2005–06, Davidson remained in Germany and played with the Sinupret Ice Tigers, before making the move to Finland for the 2006–07 season.
