Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Struggling to score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams extended his pointless streak to four games Saturday against the Golden Knights, finishing the game with a minus-3 rating and 14:54 of ice time.

Williams was strong out of the gate in his return from a three-month absence, scoring three points in his first three games back in the lineup. However, he's been skating mostly on the Canes' third line with Erik Haula and Brock McGinn, which will limit his chances to contribute offensively, although he is seeing regular minutes on the power play. Keep him on your bench until he starts to show a little more consistency.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Bags pair of goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored twice on a team-leading five shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Jets.

Williams' return to the Hurricanes is off to a terrific start. After scoring the shootout winner in his season debut Sunday, Williams followed up that performance with a two-goal effort Tuesday. His power-play goal in the first period snapped Carolina's eight-game drought with the man advantage, and he later added an insurance tally midway through the third. If the 38-year-old is still on your league's waiver wire, take a look.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Writes storybook return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored the shootout winner and fired three shots on goal in Sunday's 2-1 shootout victory over the Islanders.

The venerable Hurricane was making his first appearance of the season after signing with Carolina on Jan. 8 and it was fitting that he scored the decisive goal. Williams logged just over 13 minutes of ice time and skated on the right side of the fourth line with center Lucas Wallmark and Brock McGinn. There are a lot of things to keep an eye on here -- including possible rust, age and his initial bottom-six role -- but Williams did score 23 goals and 53 points a year ago so be prepared to pounce if the early returns are promising.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Season debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will make his season debut in Sunday's game versus the Islanders.

Williams didn't play for the first three months, as the 38-year-old didn't feel he could go 100 percent. He re-signed with the Hurricanes on Jan. 7, though, and he'll stick with them for another playoff push. Williams will line up on the fourth line to start off, and he could earn power-play time. He racked up 23 goals, 30 assists and 237 shots on net over 82 games last year.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Still awaiting season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will be a healthy scratch for Monday's game versus the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Williams will serve as a healthy scratch for the third straight game since re-signing with the Hurricanes. His stint in the press box shouldn't last long, but the 38-year-old needs to get back to NHL speed after missing the first half of the season.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Slated to return to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams has come to terms on a contract with the Hurricanes, Pete Fisher of Today's Northumberland reports.

Williams will make a base salary of $700,000 with up to $1.3 million in performance bonuses, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. The 38-year-old racked up 23 goals and 53 points over 82 games last season, and he took off the first half of this season for rest purposes. He could make his season debut as early as Friday versus the Coyotes.

Justin Williams: Won't start season with Hurricanes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams announced Monday that he will "step away from the game" and won't sign with Carolina ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

While it may sound like a retirement, and very well could be, both the team and player were clear that this should be considered a break. This leaves the door open for Williams to sign with the club prior to the trade deadline (Feb. 24) in order to be eligible for the postseason. If this does indeed mark the end of the road for Williams, he will retire having played in 1,244 games for Philadelphia, Carolina, Los Angeles and Washington. Over the course of his 18-year career, the veteran has racked up 312 goals and 474 assists while lifting Lord Stanley's Cup three times.

Justin Williams: Remains undecided
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is "still debating" whether to retire according to Carolina general manager Don Waddell, per Sara Civian of The Athletic.

The Hurricanes appear to be in no hurry for Williams to make his decision, though they likely want him in the fold for the start of training camp. The 37-year-old put up his second straight 50-plus point campaign last year and appeared in all 82 regular-season contests, which is a good indication he still has something left in the tank. If he does re-up with Carolina, the winger figures to be back in a top-six role while continuing to provide top-end fantasy value.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Mulling retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams said Tuesday that he's unsure whether he'll play next season, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

The veteran is set to turn 38 at the beginning of next season, and told reporters that he's been in frequent contact with the Hurricanes about his future. Williams added reliability to a young club last season, racking up 23 goals and 53 points while playing all 82 games. He was also instrumental in the team's Eastern Conference Finals appearance, collecting seven points in 15 playoff games. The winger is set to hit the open market come July 1, and could add a strong veteran presence to any team in the league, should he decide to keep playing.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Scores in lopsided loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored a late goal Sunday in a 6-2 loss to Boston.

The veteran forward notched his fourth goal of these playoffs, but it meant little in a game that saw the host team score the game's first six goals. Now trailing Boston 2-0, Williams and Co. must find a way to regroup on home ice; otherwise, they'll be golfing earlier than expected.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Buries goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored a goal in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4.

It wasn't a Game 7, but Williams made sure to leave his mark on the scoresheet to help the Hurricanes sweep the Islanders. Williams has three goals and three assists over 11 postseason games during this run, and the 37-year-old winger should continue to be productive in the Eastern Conference finals as he occupies a top-six role.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Chips in assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had an assist and five shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 2 of their first-round series.

His five shots led the Hurricanes for the game, despite him being designated to serve Micheal Ferland's match penalty in the second period. Williams found success with Sebastian Aho and Nino Niederreiter toward the end of a regular season that saw him produce 53 points in 82 games, but he's swapped places with Teuvo Teravainen, moving to Jordan Staal's second line for the postseason.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Comes up huge in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored his 22nd goal of the season Tuesday in a 3-2 shootout win over Pittsburgh.

After Kris Letang scored what many thought would hold up as the deciding goal Tuesday, Williams tied things up minutes later to force overtime. The extra period solved nothing, but the Hurricanes would prevail in the shootout to pick up what was a critical point as they continue their playoff push. The 37-year-old Carolina captain is up to 47 points in 72 games this season, including five game-winning goals, the most Williams has scored since 2006-07.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Assists on game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams picked up a helper in Monday's 3-0 win over the Avalanche.

Williams delivered the primary assist to Dougie Hamilton's opening goal, which doubled as the game-winner with Petr Mrazek repelling 38 Avalanche shots. Williams added four shots and two hits. With 45 points (20 goals and 25 helpers) in 69 games, Williams has remained a solid winger at the age of 37.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Chips in goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored his 20th goal of the season, a power-play marker, on four shots in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

The Hurricanes' top line of Williams, Nino Niederreiter and Sebastian Aho accounted for four of the five goals in this contest. Along with the 20 tallies, Williams has 24 assists in 68 games this season, giving him a chance for his third 50-point campaign in the last four seasons. At 37 years old, he will eventually drop off, but it appears that won't happen this year.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Pots goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams netted his 18th goal of the season in a 5-2 win over the Blues on Friday.

Williams fired three shots on goal in the contest. The veteran winger was on the verge of going cold, having gone scoreless in his previous two games, but the 37-year-old wouldn't be held off the board for long. Williams has 42 points in 64 games this year, including 13 points from as many contests in February. He's set himself up for a hot finish this year.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: On another goal binge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded two goals -- including the power-play winner -- and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Panthers.

Williams started the scoring 5:12 into the opening frame and ended it by breaking a 3-3 tie 2:15 into the third. He also added a helper in the middle frame, giving Williams a point in each period. The veteran winger's goals have come in bunches -- he kicked off the 2019 calendar year with six goals in a seven-game stretch, then went 11 games without a goal before scoring four times in his last five.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Enjoying life on top line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams grabbed two assists in Friday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

The winger is providing some veteran moxie to the Canes' top line alongside Sebastian Aho and Nino Niederreiter, but Williams has hardly been a drag on the young duo, racking up a goal and 10 points in the last 10 games. Even given his plum assignment, it's tough to project the 37-year-old to maintain his current scoring pace for long, but if he can pull it off he's still got a shot at reaching the 60-point plateau for the first time in over a decade -- 2006-07 during his first stint with Carolina, to be precise.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Scores on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had a goal with the man advantage and an assist in the third period of a 4-1 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

These streaks come for Williams, who has now scored in four of his past five games and has seven points in his past seven. He's put together stretches of five and seven games with at least a point, and his next three contests are at home, so it's a good idea to ride him until he cools off.

Hurricanes' Justin Williams: Bumped up to top line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams snapped a three-game pointless stretch with an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flames, skating primarily on the top line with Sebastian Aho and Nino Niederreiter.

Williams now has eight points through 11 games in the month of January, and is trending towards another 50-point season. The Canes' captain had previously been playing in a middle-six capacity, but with the recent reshuffling of the lineup following Niederreiter's arrival from Minnesota, he should now start to see more opportunities to contribute offensively. If you were previously stashing him away on your fantasy bench, now would be a good time to activate him.
