Lorne Davis had a 14-year professional hockey career, six of which were spent in the National Hockey League.

Davis started the 1950-51 season playing three games for the Victoria Cougars of the Pacific Coast League but he then travelled across the country to play 50 games with the Montreal Royals of the QSHL. He scored 14 goals and 17 assists that year.

In 1951-52, he again divided his playing services, starting the year with the Vancouver Canucks of the PCHL before again heading East, this time to suit up with the Buffalo Bisons of the AHL. In 48 games Davis scored 19 goals and 19 assists.

By 1952-53 Davis enjoyed a strong offensive season with the Bisons, scoring 33 goals and 34 assists for 67 points in 64 games. He also got his first taste of NHL experience, appearing in three games with the Montreal Canadiens, scoring a goal and an assist.

Davis played one more year in Montreal, moving between the Canadiens and the Royals of the QHL. In 1954-55, he played with both the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. The next NHL stop for Davis was with the Boston Bruins in 1955-56, where he played in 15 games. Davis continued to play pro hockey in the American Hockey League for the next several years and did not play another NHL game until the 1959-60 season when he suited up for ten games with the Bruins.

Lorne Davis later served as a scout for the NHL's Oilers during their 1980s four-Cup dynasty.
