Pain was a 9-28-5 finish to the season, and shooting yourselves in the skates again and again and again. This? This is not pain.

Edmonton - Nov. 23, 2015: Edmonton Oilers defenceman Brandon Davidson was in a bit of a tough spot heading into training camp.

To his credit, he accomplished exactly that and has not looked back since.
