If the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has a speed dial list, you’d assume Radko Gudas would rank high on it.
The Philadelphia Flyers defenseman plays on the edge, and sometimes – some might say, far too often – goes over the line. He received a two-minute kneeing penalty for a hit on Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri, which you can watch in the video above.
Search Gudas on Twitter and you’ll see plenty of disgust over the latest hit. We’ll find out soon enough if the league considers this suspension material.
For what it’s worth, plenty of people believe it was clean and maybe not even worthy of a penalty.
