RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gudas is one of the best and fiercest hitters in the NHL - guys see that beard coming and start shaking in their boots. He tied with David Backes for third in the league in hits (273) and became a YouTube sensation with his truculence. He's a beast in deep formats because he will deliver 20 points, 150 PIM and as many as 300 hits in a good season. He'll hold his own in standard leagues because of his "sin bin" dominance. Draft him late and enjoy the highlights (and facial hair).
Gudas is built like a fire hydrant and hits like a Mack truck. And he immediately became a fan favorite in Tampa with his bone-rattling hits after his call-up last season. His hits can change the complexion of a game and he's defensively sound. He won't deliver many points, but he will soon be the league leader in hits. And then there's that beard. Wow.
