It's no secret that when it comes to building a defensive core, consistency is key. No Flyers defenseman was as consistent during the 2018-19 season as Radko Gudas. Appearing in 77 games and totaling 20 points (4g-16a), Gudas was a force in the defensive zone, ranking second in blocked shots (255) and third on the club in hits (133) and the 28-year-old's blocked shot total was good for 10th in the NHL this season. Gudas' emergence as arguably the most reliable defender this season earned him the honor of receiving the Barry Ashbee Trophy for most outstanding defenseman as voted by his teammates.

Radko made a habit of not only impressing us on the ice, but off of it as well. Let's not forget his world-class dance moves...

Or when he reminded us that all those fights and body-checks actually *do* put hair on your chest.
