Radko Gudas has been suspended again.

The Philadelphia Flyers defenseman will sit out a pair of games for high-sticking Tampa Bay Lightning superstar Nikita Kucherov, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced Wednesday.

Gudas was assessed a minor penalty Tuesday night after hitting Kucherov in the head with his stick late in the third period.

As a repeat offender, he'll forfeit more than $80,000 in salary. The league specifically cited Gudas' disciplinary history as "what causes this play to rise to the level of a suspension."

The 28-year-old was previously banned for 10 games after slashing Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault in 2017.
