Washington D.C., MD, United States (4E Sports) - Justin Williams signed a two-year, $6.5 million deal to provide veteran presence and championshi p e xp erience to the Washington Capitals.

The 33-year-old Williams, a three-time Stanley Cup champion and Conn Smythe Trophy winner in 2014, had 41 points in 81 games with the Los Angeles Kings last season.

He spent the past six-plus seasons with the Kings, winning the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014.

Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said hat Williams has all the intangible qualities that they desire.
