Justin Williams netted two goals for the Kings, who fell 5-4 to the Stars on Saturday night.

Justin Williams found the back of the net on Wednesday.

Williams has two goals and four points in 15 games this season. He's a great guy to own in playoff leagues, but his fantasy value is limited during the regular season.
Nov 13 - 4:51 AM

Justin Williams (eye) returned to action on Saturday.

Williams is not having a good start to his season as he has only a goal and two assists in 13 games with a minus-two rating. Maybe someone should light a fire under him and tell him it's Game 7.

Justin Williams (eye) took part in Friday's practice.

Williams was dealing with blurred vision and swelling related to a cut on his eyelid that required stitches. He's hoping to play on Saturday.

Justin Williams made an impact in Sunday's Los Angeles Kings loss (3-2) to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Justin Williams was okay after falling into the boards against Detroit on Friday.

"It was pretty self-inflicted, I think," Williams said. "I went into the boards weird, and when you’re on the ground there for a few seconds, you’re just making sure everything’s in the right place. You’re making sure the shoulder’s all right. Everything felt all right, so I got up and went to the bench, and that was a little sore, but I might have dodged a bullet." Williams is off to a slow start this season with only a goal and an assist in 11 games. Maybe the imminent returns of Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik will help.
Nov 2 - 6:00 AM

Justin Williams scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday.

Williams got off to a bit of a quiet start after winning the Conn Smythe Trophy for his work in the 2014 playoffs. He might be a beast in the postseason, but he's usually much tamer in the regular season. It wouldn't shock us if he ends up recording 40-50 points in 2014-15, even after averaging nearly a point-per-game in the Kings' recent playoff run.
Oct 15 - 5:48 AM

Justin Williams had a goal and two assists in the Sharks 4-1 preseason win over rival San Jose.

Williams, Anze Kopitar, Jake Muzzin and Dwight King all had multiple point nights as the Kings seem to just own the Sharks lately. Jonathan Quick stopped 16-of-17 shots through two periods before giving way to Martin Jones who stopped all seven shots he faced in the third period.

The man who brought Justin Williams to Los Angeles in a 2009 trade, Kings general manager Dean Lombardi, was almost speechless Friday night when he considered what the forward had done in the team's long and sometimes bumpy playoff run.

"Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous," GM Dean Lombardi said of Williams. "How special is that? You always see those guys that don't get a lot of fanfare but rise to the occasion. Probably one of the best ever in all of sports. It's awesome. He's a special, special player." Williams had two goals and seven points in the Stanley Cup Final, the top scorer in the five games, and had nine goals and 25 points in the Kings' 26 playoff games. He improved his record in Game 7s to 7-0 for his career. When Williams joined the Kings in 2009, his arm was in a sling and the deal didn't seem good for L.A. On Friday, his arm was fine as he lifted first the Conn Smythe Trophy and then the Stanley Cup. Lombardi "has given me a great opportunity here," Williams said. "He saw a player that not a lot of people saw. He gave me a chance, where my career wasn't going the way I wanted it to. I was able to be a piece of this puzzle, the team that he built."

Justin Williams captured the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP on Friday night and the Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup on home ice, beating the Rangers 3-2 in double overtime.

Williams, also known as Mr. Game 7, had a marvellous playoffs for Los Angeles. The 32 year-old veteran sniped nine goals and 25 points in as many games to help the Kings capture the title for the second time in three seasons. L.A. persevered through three seven game series' and a five game Cup final to win the ultimate prize in hockey.
Jun 14 - 12:44 AM

Justin Williams doesn't believe the Kings lost Game 4 because of "puck luck" or bad bounces.

"Puck luck is for cop-outs," Williams said. "I don't believe in that at all. I'm a true believer that you get what you put into it. [Wednesday night] we simply weren't good enough and we didn't get paid off. In the grand scheme of things, we need to be better in Game 5 than we were in Game 4." He registered four shots in Wednesday's loss and saw his five-game point streak (two goals, seven assists) come to an end.

Justin Williams felt that the Kings got distracted when they got a 3-0 series lead in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final.

"I think potentially, maybe not everyone, but there were some issues that maybe got us sidetracked a little bit," Williams said. "The thought of winning a Cup, being one game away, family issues, ticket issues, all that stuff. That can maybe sidetrack you from the end result." The Kings still ended up winning the Cup in Game 6, but they obviously want to avoid giving the New York Rangers any life if they can help it. The Kings are hoping to learn from the problems they had when they held a 3-0 lead in 2012 to complete the sweep this time around.
