Tri-City Herald: Ams forward Williams not afraid to mix it up

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

There was one second left in last week’s game when Tri-City Americans forward Brian Williams threw down his gloves and got in the face of Lethbridge’s Daniel Johnston.

Maybe not the face. More like the chest. At 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, Williams didn’t quite match up to the 6-2, 210-pound Johnston, but that didn’t stop Williams from trying to make a point.

“I’ve always played that way,” Williams said. “That’s how I was taught. After the game, someone gave me his height and weight. At the time, I didn’t care. After getting cross-checked all night, I thought, ‘Why not?’ Not a lot of thought went into it at the time.”

Williams, 17, said he can get mad pretty easily, but that just adds to his passion for the game and the safety of his teammates. It was a quality Americans general manager Bob Tory liked when he saw Williams play at a younger level.
