Stephon Williams (born April 28, 1993) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing for Bietigheim Steelers in the DEL2. He was selected by the New York Islanders in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Williams played college hockey with the Minnesota State Mavericks in the NCAA Men's Division I WCHA conference. In his freshman year, Williams' outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2012–13 All-WCHA First Team.
Upon completion of his junior campaign with the Mavericks, Williams turned professional by signing a two-year entry-level contract with the New York Islanders on April 2, 2015. He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers to finish the 2014–15 season.
At the completion of his entry-level contract, Williams was not tendered a qualifying offer from the Islanders thus releasing him as a free agent. On September 13, 2017, Williams agreed to a one-year AHL contract with the San Jose Barracuda.
After three full professional seasons in North America, Williams opted to embark on a European career, signing a one-year deal with Slovakian club, HC '05 Banská Bystrica of the Slovak Extraliga on June 26, 2018.
