For at least one night, Radko Gudas played like an elite-level NHL defenseman.

Heading into Saturday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Philadelphia Flyers blue-liner had zero goals, six assists, 98 shots, 98 penalty minutes, and a minus-two rating through 57 games.

19:56 2 2 7 5 4 4

As another point of reference, Gudas' single-season career high in points is 22, set in 2013-14 with Tampa Bay; in one game, he dropped 18 percent of that total.

Yes, one of his goals came from center ice, but we might not see the stat sheet filled by such an unlikely player again this season.

Perhaps the Flyers said it best:
