I'm glad Jeremy Williams cleared waivers this afternoon and is headed back to the Marlies in the AHL. Firstly, that means I'll get to see him play on Saturday afternoon, and secondly, I like him as a player and hold out hope he can contribute to the Leafs.
On February 28, 2008, I wrote this little blurb about Jeremy Williams.
Jeremy Williams has played three NHL games in his career, all with the Leafs and each one separated by months in the AHL. He debuted on April 18, 2006, played his second game on February 26, 2007 and he played his third game in last night's thrilling comeback victory. Each game has been about a year apart and each game has featured a goal by this native of Glenavon, Saskatchewan. Three games, three years, three goals.
In December he was called up again, and scored again in his first game back. That's incredible.
See ya on the Marlies, Jeremy, but hopefully not for long.
