The New Jersey Devils aren’t the only team hosting their first ever Moms Trip this year. Wednesday, the Carolina Hurricanes got in on the action, which meant the return of Justin Williams’ incredible hair and the woman responsible — his mother, Denise.
The Canes posted a series of photos commemorating the trip to their Twitter, with Williams and his mom front and center. Whilst Williams’ coiffed locks were restrained under his helmet, his mother’s were flowing free.

Reunited with his true hair twin — and not a Swedish imposter — Williams cheeses for the camera. In the distance, you can hear Andre Burakovsky’s heart break.
Of course, the Canes and their moms also posed for a team photo together.
Seventeen moms and one sister will be joining the Canes on their one-game road trip to New Jersey. Tuesday, the Canes notched a 7-3 win with their moms in attendance against Los Angeles.
“It’s going to be fantastic,” head coach Bill Peters said to CarolinaHurricanes.com’s Michael Smith. “It’s very special. I’m sure they’re going to be very appreciative. It’s a nice gesture by the ownership. It’s fun. It truly is fun. It’s something you don’t get to do all the time, so when you do get to do it, you better cherish it.”
There was also a little disagreement over which country has the most momma’s boys. The Americans wanted the title for themselves, but the Swedes might have just edged it.
Though Williams doesn’t feature in the video, he did give his mom a shoutout on Twitter, whilst calling out his dad for hogging all the trips so far.

This isn’t the first time that Denise Williams’ sweet flow has stolen the show. In celebration of Williams’ 1000th game, she featured in a tribute video marking the milestone.
The Carolina Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils clash tonight in the first of two meetings this year. The Canes moms aren’t all about the hockey alone on this trip, however.

It’s just a shame that Frozen hasn’t opened on Broadway yet, so they could stay on brand.
