A former Peterborough Pete, Jason Williams would go on to play 11 seasons in the NHL, most notable with the Detroit Red Wings. Williams was a part of the Red Wings team that won the Stanley Cup in 2002. Williams shares some stories playing alongside future hall of famers, and some other memorable moments along the way.
Williams talks about how he bet on himself as his junior career wrapped up in Peterborough, and that led to an eventual pro contract with the Detroit Red Wings.
After retiring, Williams has spent the last three season coaching, and has helped lead the Elgin-Middlsex Chiefs to a Minor Midget Alliance Championship this year. He talks about his transition to coaching, as he prepares for the OHL Cup.
