Top 40 Goal-Scorers: No. 29

When Deniece Williams’ “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” started to reverberate throughout Allstate Arena during the first half of the 2010s, that could only mean one thing: The player who ranks No. 29 on the Wolves Top 40 countdown, presented by Jewel-Osco, had just scored a goal.

Shortly after wrapping up his four-year career at the University of Wisconsin, where he was the No. 2 goal scorer for a squad that went all the way to the 2010 national championship game, Michael Davies joined the Wolves and jumped right into the scoring column.

At 5-foot-9 and 178 pounds, the Chesterfield, Missouri, native relied on his great hands and skill to stack up 47 goals and 52 assists in four years with the Wolves. When Chicago captured the Midwest Division title in 2013-14, Davies teamed with Pat Cannone and Shane Harper to form a line that owned a chemistry other teams struggled to match. Davies posted 13 goals and 18 assists in 46 games that year.

After helping the Wolves reach the 2014 Western Conference semifinals, Davies headed across the pond and continued his double-digit goal-scoring ways. After four years in Germany’s top league, Davies spent 2018-19 in Austria and last season with the EIHL’s Sheffield Steelers — where he produced 13 goals and 26 assists in 41 games.
