What should you expect from Justin Williams this season? Well, this is what he expects from himself.
“I’ll take it as it comes, but if I don’t score at least 20 goals on an offensive line, it’s a disappointing year.”
Williams said he has completely healed from last season’s Achilles’ tendon and finger injuries, and that he feels more comfortable with the Kings than he did after last year’s midseason trade. Williams also had this to say about potential linemate Anze Kopitar:
“He’s an extremely skilled, large man out there,” Williams said. “He’s fun to play with.”
Williams also helped shed light on the Kings players’ new t-shirts, which read “What We’re Here For” on the back.
“The wording is a little different,” Williams joked. “The reason we’re here is for each other and the reason we’re here is to make the playoffs this year. That’s goal one for this year.”
