Davis is a graduate of Hudson High School, The University of Wisconsin-Madison and was a member of the 2012 Stanley Cup Winning LA Kings. He is a father to 2 kids, a husband and active community member. We were honored to help care for Davis while he recovered from a multilevel cervical (neck) fracture while playing hockey in high school. He was an ideal patient who worked very hard to recover and play the sports he loves, which in HS was Football, Baseball and Hockey. The strength of his family, especially his amazing mother, Karen, was the driving force behind his recovery from that injury. Besides being one of a (very select) few that won a state championship in High School, National Championship in College as well as a Stanley Cup in the NHL, Davis is an even better person. His dedication to family is inspiring as is his ability to deal with adversity and persevere. He retired from the NHL in 2016, spends significant time donating to charities and was nominated 3 times as the AHL’s “Man of the Year”.
