February 2013 - After an impressive yet short stint in Tampa Bay's training camp, Gudas has continued to be a strong defensive leader for Syracuse. Revered as one of the AHL's most feared hitters, the 22-year-old has four goals, 17 points and a team best plus-25 rating thru 47 games. In addition, Gudas 189 PIM currently ranks 4th in the AHL. While he likely won't be much of an offensive contributor in the NHL, his physical brand of hockey should result in a large amount of penalty minutes and hits. Randy Buschmann
July 2012 – Radko Gudas continues to develop the reputation as a hard-checking, physical, stay-at-home defenseman. He was 7th in the AHL last year with 195 PIM, however still managed to score 7 goals and have 20 points on an offensively explosive Norfolk team. He has been turning heads in the Lightning organization because of his strong defense and he’s not an offensive liability.
Fantasy Outlook: D-
He’s more valuable to his real NHL team than he ever will be to your fantasy team. With that said, he can score a few points and will help in penalty minutes. He is too far down the organizational depth chart to see more than a couple games this season.
