Williams announces retirement from NHL
I’ll always be thankful to Williams for his role in the Hurricanes’ Storm Surge celebrations.
"Since I first broke into the League a day after my 19th birthday back in 2000, this game has brought me so much that I will never be able to repay it," Williams said in a statement.
