Playing career

Davidsson wears jersey number 76 and is the captain of HV71. In 2005 Davidsson renewed his contract with HV71 until the end of season 2009–10. He is regarded as an able skater with a good eye for the game and is as good as a playmaker as a scorer. He has got fine puck control but lacks the physical aspects of the game to fit in NHL. He has been awarded the Swedish hockey journalists association prize Rinkens riddare (Knight of the Rink) for three consecutive seasons, 2002–03, 2003–04 and 2004–05, and the Elitserien's referee association prize Årets gentleman (Gentleman of the Year, which resembles Lady Byng Memorial Trophy of the NHL) for two consecutive seasons, 2002–03 and 2003–04. In 2009 he was awarded Guldhjälmen (Golden Helmet, resembling the Lester Pearson Award) as Elitserien's most valuable player.

Davidsson played his first Elitserien game on January 14, 1993, in Stockholm, Sweden, against Djurgårdens IF. His first appearance for Sweden's national team was on November 7, 1996, in a game in Helsinki, Finland, against Czech Republic. Davidsson was drafted in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by Anaheim Ducks with their second choice, the 28th overall selection.

In the 2007 World Championships, Davidsson won the point scoring league with 14 points, just one point past Russia's Alexei Morozov. The 2007 tournament was Davidsson's best World Championships personally, having only scored three points in his previous two tournaments.
