That durability came in handy Thursday night when he scored a goal off of his face.
The Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 at home so you know what that means: another fun storm surge!
What’s this storm surge you ask? It’s where the Carolina Hurricane players ham it up with the crowd and do a special team celebration. “Hockey is our life and job, but it is still a game,” Hurricanes captain Justin Williams said earlier in the year. “Enjoy the good times and have fun with it. Let’s celebrate more this year.”
Friday night, Williams got out his figurative bowling ball — his helmet — and rolled a strike.
After a four-game road trip, former Capital Justin Williams returned home to quite a surprise: a very smol, very cute puppy!

The Carolina Hurricanes currently lead the Metropolitan Division early in the season, and they are being led by their captain: former Washington Capital forward Justin Williams.
Williams had expressed frustration with the team’s performance prior to being named captain. He’s focusing on the positives now.
