Williams has three Cups and a Conn Smythe to his well earned "Mr. Game Seven" moniker, all the while posting 249 goals and 634 points along the way. A remarkable career to say the least.

Justin Williams has five goals and no assists in his last 13 games.

Williams had a great hot streak just before that, so he's averaged out to 18 points in 28 games in 2015-16. Going into the season, there was some speculation about the possibility of him playing alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, but it's T.J. Oshie that's been playing in that coveted role more often than not. With that in mind, Williams is having a fairly strong campaign by his regular season standards.
