Justin Williams played his 1,000 NHL game on April 26th, 2016. The Capitals honored Williams with a pre-game ceremony that included a tribute video with clips from his past and current team mates.
The video included comments from Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Quick, Alex Ovechkin and Mike Richards offering him their congratulations. Even Williams’ parents got in on the fun and Mom clearly showed us where Williams gets that wild hair.
