Not Exactly A Heroes ‘Welcome Home’ For Justin Williams

One could easily argue that Justin Williams was the Capitals’ MVP in their first round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Williams tallied three goals and three assists in the six games against the Leafs, including an assist on the series winning goal by Marcus Johansson. Yet Williams’ stellar series play was not enough to avoid a dreaded speeding ticket. 

Williams tweeted out a portion of his speeding ticket just past 2:00 a.m. Monday morning.

It’s not clear if William’s garnered the ticket on his way home from Dulles Airport early Monday morning, or if the ticket was waiting for him when got off the team’s charter at Dulles following the team’s return from Toronto. Either way, it’s fairly evident that there is one law enforcement officer who is not much of a hockey fan.
