Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Radko Gudas has waived his right to an in-person hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety, and will have a phone hearing on Sunday.

Gudas will have to answer for a reckless slash to the back of Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault‘s head he made on Thursday.

By offering an in-person hearing, the DoPS can suspend Gudas for more than five games.
