Kenneth George Davies, known to all as 'Buck' was born in Bowmanville, Ontario on August 10th, 1922. Davies played a year of Junior then a year of Senior hockey in his home province before his career was put on hold for three years while he fulfilled his military service obligations. Davies returned to the ice in 1946 with the St. Paul Saints then spent the 1947-48 campaign with the New Haven Ramblers but got his NHL opportunity that spring during the 1948 playoffs.

Davies joined the New York Rangers for one game that spring but was unable to make an impression for the Blueshirts and never returned to the NHL level.

The Rangers dealt Davies to the American Hockey League's Providence Reds where the centre spent seven of the next nine seasons. After his final season with the Reds in 1957-58 Davies left the club, and the AHL and moved on to the Eastern Hockey League where he signed with the Washington Presidents. 1960-61 was Davies final year of hockey and he spent it with the Philadelphia Ramblers then retired from the game.
