Radko Gudas has amassed 81 hits in just 20 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
He had a reputation for being a big-time hitter in the AHL and he has lived up to that in the NHL. "That's what makes him a ball player," coach Jon Cooper said. "I've seen it for three years. And as an organization we are extremely happy that he's on our team and not somebody else's." Gudas has averaged nearly 17 minutes of ice time with the Lightning since being brought up from the minors and he has chipped in four points as well.
