Do not expect the Los Angeles Kings to re-sign Justin Williams now that they have acquired Milan Lucic.
The Kings will let the veteran Williams become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and there are plenty of teams who can use a three-time Stanley Cup champion. Williams should have no problem garnering a long-term deal from another NHL team. He had 18 goals and 41 points in a bit of a down year but Williams can certainly score some big goals as he has shown in the past. Jun 27 - 7:30 AM

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, there isn’t much "common ground" in contract talks between the Los Angeles Kings and potential free-agent Justin Williams.

Williams is set to become a UFA on July 1st and although he’s been an important piece of the team, it appears as though it may be difficult for the two sides to stay together. The 33-year-old scored 18 goals and 41 points in 81 games last season.

Winning is the primary drive for pending free agent Justin Williams.

The three-time Cup champion Williams has his priorities, "I'm at a point in my career where it's not all about money, it's about winning for me." Williams will be entering his age-34 season and is coming off a contract that dinged the LA Kings' cap at $3.65M the last four seasons. The Kings meanwhile will have just $4.88M in cap space to spread across half a dozen players like Tyler Toffoli, Andrej Sekera, and Martin Jones.

Justin Williams kicked April off with a pair of assists during Thursday's 8-2 win over the Oilers.

Williams has had an inconsistent season from a fantasy perspective, but his general on-ice play has yet to waver. He may always been a fantasy-tweener, but 18 goals and 40 points is nothing to sneeze at either.
Apr 3 - 2:13 AM

Justin Williams had an assist in a 4-2 victory against the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

Williams has recorded a point in three of his last four contests. He has 18 goals and 38 points in 72 contests in 2014-15. Despite those lackluster numbers, Williams should have a strong finish to the season as the Kings battle for a playoffs spot.
Mar 25 - 11:03 AM

Justin Williams recorded an assist in a 3-1 win over New Jersey.

Williams has two goals and eight points in 11 games this month. That's significantly better than he's done overall in 2014-15 and might be a preview of what we can expect from him in the playoffs, if Los Angeles manages to clinch a postseason berth. Williams does have a reputation of being a better playoff player than regular season forward.
Mar 24 - 11:07 AM

Justin Williams is getting hot as he has five points in his last two games.

His season stats aren't great, even with the outburst of late but he now has 17 goals and 35 points in 66 games. The hero of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs and the Conn Smythe winner can get hot at any time and this looks to be one of those times.
Mar 14 - 7:45 AM

Justin Williams had two assists in a 5-2 win over Colorado.

Williams has 16 goals and 32 points in 65 games in 2014-15. Those numbers are in line with his 2013-14 regular season performance, but those hoping for more after he won the 2014 Conn Smythe Trophy have been sorely disappointed.
Mar 11 - 9:40 AM

Justin Williams scored the lone goal on the power-play in a 1-0 Kings' win over Detroit on Tuesday.

Williams redirected a point shot from Jake Muzzin past Detroit goalie Jonas Gustavsson at the 2:24 mark of the first period. It turned out to be the only goal needed for the Kings in a shutout win. It was Williams' 16th of the year and snapped a six game goal-less streak. Anze Kopitar also picked up an assist on the goal.
Feb 25 - 1:27 AM

Justin Williams potted two goals to lead the Kings to a 4-2 win over the Lightning on Saturday.

The advanced stats darling scored the third in the Kings’ three-goal first period and the final goal of the frame at 7:42 of the third. The goals snapped a seven-game pointless streak. Williams now has 15 goals and 27 points this season. He’s only worth owning as a depth forward and not someone to count on every game. Tyler Toffoli and Drew Doughty scored the other markers in the win. Robyn Regehr chipped in with two helpers.
Feb 7 - 7:49 PM

The Los Angeles Kings will visit the White House on Monday as the defending Stanley Cup champions.

The Kings won the Cup in 2012 and 2014, but for Williams this will be his third visit as he also won it all with Carolina in 2006. Of course, this comes at a time when the Kings are on the outside, looking in on the playoff race, but Williams doesn't think this will distract them. "We're going to enjoy it and get us refocused on a road trip we need to get a lot of wins on," he said.
Feb 2 - 9:15 AM

Justin Williams scored a goal and set up another in a 5-3 loss to New Jersey on Wednesday.

Williams now has four goals in five games and has 25 points in 42 games this season. He is on place to eclipse 43 points last season. Dustin Brown and Marion Gaborik scored the other two goals while Brayden McNabb picked up two helpers as the Kings tried but couldn't recover from an awful second period.
Jan 15 - 1:29 AM

Justin Williams scored twice in the Kings' 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Thursday night.

His first goal made it 2-0 Kings just 5:49 into the game was one for the highlight reel, as he simply wound up and sent one past Talbot like it was targeting practice. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for the win. Williams now has 11 goals and 22 points on the season.
Jan 9 - 3:23 AM

Justin Williams scored a power-play goal in the Kings' 3-2 victory over Vancouver.

Williams has nine goals and 20 points in 33 games in 2014-15. There aren't many players that are consistently better in the playoffs than the regular season, but Williams is one of them. Assuming the Kings earn a postseason birth, he's a guy you'll want to pick up early in your playoff fantasy league. For now though, don't expect anything special.
Jan 2 - 9:15 AM

Kings general manager Dean Lombardi has asked Justin Williams’ camp for "a little more time" to work out an extension, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman says that Williams "had a soft deadline of next week." Williams, 33, is enjoying a solid season in Los Angeles, with eight goals and 19 points. He’s also a darling of advanced stat community for his puck-possession prowess. Williams is in the last season of a four-year deal that carried a $3.65 million cap hit.
