    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Three primary assists

    Justin Williams registered three assists in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Rangers.Carolina's captain also tallied two shots on goal, but neither found twine. Williams, after being held without a point in the season's first two contests, got back to a point-a-game pace thanks to a trio of assists Sunday against New York. The 37-year-old veteran continues to be a legitimate offensive threat despite closing in on 40 years of age, and early signs suggest the former Conn Smythe trophy winner has no plans of slowing down.

    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Five shots in OT loss Thursday

    Justin Williams skated on the first line with Jordan Staal and Warren Foegele in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders. He did not factor into the scoring, but finished the season opener with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal and 18:49 of ice time.Williams has been a model of consistency, registering 51, 48 and 52 points, respectively, in the last three seasons. However, the newly appointed captain of the Carolina Hurricanes is now 36 years old, so one wonders how much longer he can sustain his recent scoring pace. For fantasy purposes, as long as he continues to receive first-line duties (he skated 2:57 on the power play Thursday), Williams should challenge for 50 points once again this season, but keep a close eye on his ice time and shot totals.

    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Appointed as Carolina captain

    Justin Williams was named captain of the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.Between the addition of 2018 second overall pick Andrei Svechnikov and Czech prospect Martin Necas -- just to name a few -- the Hurricanes are expected to tap into the fountain of youth this season. However, Williams will lead the charge after putting up 16 goals and 35 assists over 82 games last season. The veteran is quite durable, as he's only missed two games in the last three years, so upgrade him in weekly leagues.

    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Enjoys solid season in 2017-18

    Justin Williams finished third in team scoring in 2017-18 with 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists), cracking the 50-point plateau for just the sixth time in his 17-year NHL career.The Carolina Hurricanes brought back the veteran Williams this season in an effort to get back to the postseason, but they unfortunately fell short for the ninth consecutive year. Williams is a proven scorer and appears to have a lot left in the tank, but given his advancing age (he will be 37 years old next season), one has to wonder when his production will start to tail off. Looking ahead, he is set to enter the final year of a two-year contract with the Canes and should return to a similar top-six role come October.

    Justin Williams scored a goal and set up another in the first period of his team's 3-2 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.Williams concluded the season as a 50-point player thanks to a strong game to end the year. He's been quite consistent in terms of points in the past five years, scoring between 43 and 52 points per year. But this season saw him go heavy on the assists, notching 35 for his highest total since 2012.

    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Scoring slump continues Thursday

    Justin Williams extended his current point drought to four games Thursday against the Coyotes.Overall, Williams has been a positive addition for the Canes this season, as he's just five points away from cracking the 50-point barrier for the sixth time in his 17-year career. However, he's been held off the scoresheet in 11 of his past 16 games, so he's pulled a major disappearing act down the stretch -- at precisely the time Carolina needed him most, ensuring the team will once again be on the outside looking in at playoff time. The 36-year-old Williams could be looking at his swan song next season as he enters the final year of his two-year contract.

    Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Records three points against Flyers

    Justin Williams scored two goals and added an assist during Thursday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.The veteran had missed the scoresheet in each of the past five games, so this was an overdue offensive outburst. Williams is now up to 12 goals and 41 points for the campaign, and there's probably still positive regression ahead of his 7.9 shooting percentage. It wouldn't be shocking if he posted serviceable numbers through the end of the season and provided value as a secondary scorer for fantasy owners in deeper settings.
