Minot, ND – As the 2016/17 NAHL season draws near we are giving Tauros fans a chance to meet all of the new members of the club as well as learn a little more about the returning Tauros. We will play 20 questions with a different Tauro every day from now until the NAHL Showcase going in number order, today we catch up with veteran defenseman #26 Luke Davison.
Davison goes into his final year of junior looking to bounce back from a season ending injury. Before going on injured reserve in late January Davison posted a goal and 6 assists through 37 games in his second season in Minot. For his career Davison is +16 in 85 regular season games as a Tauro and +2 in 8 playoff games.
From the Coaches’ Office: Luke is coming off season ending surgery and has looked strong in camp thus far. It’s natural to be a little tentative coming off surgery, but after getting past that stage, Luke looks comfortable back on the ice. He has a lot of upside whether it be moving the puck or playing with some physicality. The biggest thing for him with this being his third year of junior hockey, will be keeping it simple and letting the puck do the work. I’m hopeful he can come back stronger than ever post surgery. – Marty Murray
