Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday in Tampa.
A determination following surgery will be made on how long Gudas will be out of the Lightning lineup.
Gudas, 24, returned to Tampa on Sunday prior to the Lightning’s 4-2 victory in Ottawa. He is schedule to receive further examination after missing training sessions Friday and Saturday and three-straight games.
This latest setback is unrelated to the lower-body injury that kept Gudas out of four games during the second week of the 2014-15 regular season.
