Justin Williams is excited that Rod Brind’Amour will serve as the team's new head coach.
Williams and Brind'Amour played together with the Hurricanes from the 2003-04 campaign through 2008-09. Over that span, they won the Stanley Cup together in 2006. "He's seen so much so many coaches in his time, he's learned from them, he deserves a chance to make it his own. I've got a lot of time for Roddy. He means a lot to me in my hockey career. Absolutely, I'm going to endorse him," Williams said. Brind’Amour's NHL career spanned 1,484 games, but he also has been serving as a coach with the Hurricanes since 2011. Now he's been promoted as the team's bench boss and has an opportunity to prove himself in that role. May 9 - 7:13 AM

All-in-all, this has been a pretty productive season for the 36-year-old.

Williams came to the defense of teammate Sebastian Aho after he absorbed a hit to the head from Mark Giordano and got two for instigating, five for fighting and a misconduct.

Williams and his teammates were unable to hang on, eventually losing the game 3-2.

Hopefully this early goal will be a confidence builder and he'll get going after a rather slow start in the goals department.

Justin Williams' goal Friday night was his 700th career NHL point.

Williams thus becomes the third player of his 2000 draft class to reach that milestone, joining Marian Gaborik and Dany Heatley. The 36-year-old winger is still a productive fantasy player evidenced by the fact he is tied for second in Canes' scoring with 18 points in 24 games.

Justin Williams found the back of the net in Friday's 5-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

He's up to five goals and 18 points in 24 games this season. Williams is on pace to hit the 60-point mark in 2017-18.
