I've been doing a lot of tooling around on the Hurricanes message boards lately. Today, somebody posted a question because they used the internet hockey database, but didn't use it well. They asked if Hurricanes winger Justin Williams had gone back to school during the lockout. Apparently, the database has a record of a dude named Justin Williams who is a winger for the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. It's obviously a different guy. The NCAA wouldn't permit a professional athlete to compete on the college level.
A tiny bit of research found some pretty bizarre results. Both the UMD Justin Williams and the Carolina Hurricanes Justin Williams have the exact same birthdate. October 4, 1981. I'm not making this up. Check the links to their profiles.
