Oklahoma City Barons rookie defenceman Brandon Davidson has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Davidson will undergo immediate treatment at The Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center on the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center campus in downtown Oklahoma City.

Drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the sixth round (162nd overall) in 2010, Davidson signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Oilers on May 31.

Last season, the native of Lethbridge, Alta., had 13 goals and 36 assists with a plus-26 rating through 69 games with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League.
