Matthew B. Davidson (born August 9, 1977 in Flin Flon, Manitoba) is a former National Hockey League right wing. He was drafted in the fourth round, 94th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He currently plays with Frederikshavn Whitehawks of Denmark's Oddset Ligaen.

After playing four seasons with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League, Davidson made his professional debut with the Sabres' AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans. He played three seasons with the Americans before the Sabres traded his rights to the Columbus Blue Jackets as part of a deal during the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft. Davidson played in 56 NHL games over three seasons with the Blue Jackets, scoring five goals and adding seven assists.

During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Davidson went to Germany to join the DEG Metro Stars of the Deutsche Eishockey League. While the NHL resumed play in 2005–06, Davidson remained in Germany and played with the Sinupret Ice Tigers, before making the move to Finland for the 2006–07 season.

Matt Davidson has signed a 2-year contract (2007–08 and 2008–09) in Denmark for the Frederikshavn Whitehawks.
