On April 10, 2016, Justin Williams played in his 1,000 career NHL game. During a touching pregame ceremony, Williams was gifted with a commemorative crystal from the NHL, a silver stick from the Capitals, and a Scottish golf vacation for two from the Capitals players. Nicklas Backstrom seemed particularly proud of the last gift, and now we see why. It was a gift for him too!
This week, Williams went on his golf vacation to the Old Course at St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland. He brought along Caps teammates Backstrom, Marcus Johansson, and Daniel Winnik along with former teammate Mike Richards. Swedish golfer Marcus Krischel and two unidentified others also participated.
The Old Course at St. Andrews is one of the oldest golf courses in the world.
