Police say that the 33-year-old Medvedev was pulled over for a traffic violation and later arrested.

In 45 games this season, the Russian defenseman recorded 12 points and averaged 18:49 of ice time per game. He did not appear in any of Philadelphia’s six playoff games against the Washington Capitals.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall had no comment on Medvedev's arrest while speaking with the media on Wednesday.
