RALEIGH, N.C. – Jim Rutherford, President / General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with right wing Justin Williams on a one-year contract. As per club policy, no other terms were announced.

“Justin is one of the young players we anticipate will play a significant role on our team,” said Rutherford. “He has demonstrated that he can develop into a top-level NHL player.”

In 2003-04, his fourth NHL season, Williams established career highs for games played (79), assists (33), points (44) and penalty minutes (64). Carolina acquired the 24-year-old Cobourg, Ont., native last season from the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 20, 2004, in exchange for defenseman Danny Markov, and Williams scored five goals and earned 13 assists (18 points) in 32 games with the Hurricanes. Following the 2003-04 season, Williams joined Team Canada for the 2004 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships in the Czech Republic and played in all nine of Canada’s games en route to the tournament’s gold medal.

The Flyers selected Williams (6’ 1”, 190 lbs.) in the first round, 28th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, and Williams made Philadelphia’s NHL roster the following season after just two years in the Ontario Hockey League. In 226 career NHL games, Williams has scored 43 goals and notched 72 assists (115 points) while accumulating 108 penalty minutes. In his two OHL seasons with the Plymouth Whalers, Williams posted 41 goals and 54 assists (95 points) in 115 regular-season games, and tallied 30 points during Plymouth’s 23-game run to the 1999-00 OHL finals. His 14 goals and 30 points led the OHL in the 1999-00 playoffs, and his plus-47 plus/minus rating during the 1999-00 regular season was tied for best in the league.
