Edmonton Rush forward Jarrett Davis is entering his fifth season in the NLL and coming off his best year ever in the league.
In his second season with the Rush, Davis tied his career best with 16 goals and added a personal best 37 assists for a total of 53 points. He has now compiled 146 points over 61 games, split evenly between Edmonton and the Rochester Knighthawks.
The Bellarmine grad came to Edmonton via a trade that saw Paul Rabil be traded to Rochester. Rabil had refused to report, so Edmonton basically got something for nothing (Rabil was eventually dealt to the Philadelphia Wings before the start of the 2013 season). Considering that they got a solid asset for a player who never put on the uniform, it would seem the Rush got the better of the deal.
Davis has indeed been an asset with the Rush, putting up the two best years of his career and helping them two of their three winningest seasons in team history.
Davis is primarily a playmaker, setting things up for finishers Mark Matthews, Curtis Knight and Zack Greer. Along with Cory Conway, Davis set the table for what was the second most potent offense in the NLL in 2014 (220 goals).
At 27 years old, Davis is in his prime, so he should be able to continue to post solid numbers for a few more seasons as a member of the Rush. Look forward to seeing him once again make everyone around him look better when the Rush kick off their 2015 season in Buffalo against the Bandits.
