June 2022 – Dudas completed his second full season with the Reign where he took another step towards cracking the NHL roster. He logged 23 points across 61 games this season but showed his true value in his 200-foot game. He has a good stick to break up plays and plays with a strong back check to force turnovers. Standing at just 5-9, Dudas has grown physically over the past year and now weighs 185 lbs. This has positively impacted his game as Dudas has been able to effectively throw his weight around. He still has a unique toolbox and upside that could take another year to uncover. With his blend of tenacity and skill, he could be an ideal fit in the Kings bottom-six in 2022-23. As we have seen at each level he has played at, he may need a year to find his footing offensively. He should be on the radar of fantasy owners in dynasty leagues and larger keeper league formats, especially those that reward physicality. Sean Crocker
March 2020 – Dudas was signed to a three-year entry-level contract by the Kings shortly after kicking off his quest for a gold medal with Team Canada at the World Juniors. Dudas played a large role on the penalty kill for Canada chipping in two assists in the tournament. Although he is undersized, he plays a heavy game and has amassed 53 points in 48 games for Owen Sound this season. Unfortunately, he will not be able to add to this total as the OHL announced the cancellation of the regular season. He has already appeared in six games for the Reign last season and will push for a full-time role as a pro for the 2020-2021 season, although he could be given another year in Junior. Julian Mongillo
