Justin Williams is getting a lot of media attention today--and rightly so--for his role on the dominant Kopitar line.

If you're looking for the shot attempt leaders on the Kings, Williams is right up there next to Kopitar. He keeps trying to make plays. He's always on the attack.

Despite battling back from a series of injuries, Justin Williams has remained one of the Kings' possession leaders over the years. When he's on the ice, the puck is usually moving in the right direction. Even more impressively, he's stood out in this regard compared to all other players in the National Hockey League.

Last year, Williams was the engine of the second line. This year, he's a key player on the first.

Underlying numbers support it. He's a boss.
