Earlier in the season, we learned from defenseman Taylor Chorney that Justin Williams‘ nickname is Stick. Williams originally got that nickname during his time in Los Angeles. Stick apparently is an endearing hockey nickname for a skinny teammate.
“It’s slowly become ‘Stick’ and it’s slowly sticking, no pun intended,” Chorney said.
But that’s not the only nickname Williams goes by in Washington. According to Nicklas Backstrom, Williams’ Mr. Game 7 moniker has been adjusted by his new teammates right in time for the playoffs.
