Flyers defenseman arrested on suspicion of DUI


Evgeny Medvedev of the Philadelphia Flyers was arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to NBC Philadelphia.

Police say that the 33 year old Medvedev was pulled over for a traffic violation and later arrested. No charges have been filed and toxicology reports are not complete. Medvedev was later released from custody.

Medvedev signed a one year contract worth $3 million in the summer after spending the last eight seasons with Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL. In 45 games with the Flyers this season, the Russian defenseman recorded 12 points. He was scratched for Philadelphia’s six playoff games against the Washington Capitals.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall had no comment on Medvedev's arrest.
