Rob Davison (Born May 1, 1980 in St. Catharines, Ontario) is a defenseman for the San Jose Sharks. Davison was selected by San Jose in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft (4th Round, 98th overall) but did not ice for the NHL outfit until the 2002-03 season.
Following the trading of Bryan Marchment, the San Jose Sharks recalled defenseman Davison from their AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Barons. At the time Davison had four points and 82 penalty minutes in 42 games with Cleveland.
During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, Davison played in the UK's professional ice hockey league, the EIHL, with the Cardiff Devils.
"A mountain of a man", Davison is a utility defenseman who is known for his "big-time mean streak". While he needs to "work on his skating, especially the quick pivot" and "is extremely limited in terms of his offensive capability," Davison looks to be a steady NHL defenseman for years.TSN
