Back in July, Davis Brown told me he was planning on returning to the Sarnia Sting this season as one of their three allowed overage players. Turned out that was not the case when shortly there after, he signed in the pro ranks overseas in Sweden with Sollentuna HC.

In his time playing in Sweden, he dressed in two games and did not score a point in either game, but not surprisingly added 8 penalty minutes.

Less than half a year later, the 20 year old left winger is eyeing a return to the OHL after unforeseen circumstances has left him without a team to play for. It has been speculated that his Sollentuna HC club has gone bankrupt and ceased operations, although eurohockey says the Sollentuna Hockey Club remains active. Regardless of the reasoning, Brown is on his way back to Canada and eyeing a return to the OHL with the Sarnia Sting.

The Sarnia Sting however, may have different ideas for Davis as according to a source, Derian Hatcher and company may not want Davis back, after all, he did abruptly leave them for a sub par opportunity in Sweden. The Sting have the necessary room to bring Davis back, should they choose, as they are only currently carrying one lone overage player in Daniel Nikandrov.

We’ll see where Davis ends up as many teams have room to take on an overage player, should Sarnia choose to trade his services. Guelph, Sault Ste. Marie, London, Kitchener, Saginaw, Peterborough and Owen Sound all have room to add an overage player such as Brown.

Over parts of 4 OHL seasons, all with the Sarnia Sting, the 5’9 194lb forward scored 67 points in 191 games played and totalled 105 penalty minutes in that time. Davis’ most impressive season came during the 2014-2015 campaign where the London, ON native notched 34 points in 57 games played.
