Justin Williams apparently tried his hand at new work before falling back on what he does best.

The Carolina Hurricanes gave a glimpse at what Williams was doing during his break from playing hockey in a video released Saturday.

Williams was an unrestricted free agent and took his time deciding whether to return for the 2019-20 season. The video showed him working odd jobs around PNC Arena, like manning the goal horn, setting up cones as a parking attendant, sharpening skates and working in the team store.

None of it went particularly well.

Fortunately he and Carolina agreed to a one-year contract Jan. 8 and will be doing what he does best.
