Davidsson was acquired in February as part of the deal that sent Matt Duchene to the Columbus Blue Jackets. He has one goal and two assists in eight games with Belleville this season, his first campaign in North America.

The Senators also announced centre Colin White has been assigned to Belleville for a conditioning stint. He has been out since late last month with a hip injury.

The Senators say White will practise with Belleville on Thursday and play an AHL game on Friday in Syracuse, N.Y.
