Lightning Winger Ryan Malone Charged with Cocaine Possession Following DUI Arrest

Lightning left wing Ryan Malone was released on $2,500 bond Saturday morning after being arrested for driving under the influence in the middle of the night in Tampa, Fla. He was also charged with cocaine possession according to the arrest  reported filed by the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office.

According to Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times, the arrest occurred at 5:40 a.m. ET in Tampa. It remains to be seen how this will impact Malone’s playoff status, but Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman released a statement regarding the incident.

“We are aware of the situation concerning Ryan Malone this morning,” Yzerman said. “Ryan will not travel with the team to Washington today, but beyond that we cannot comment further at this time.”

Malone is in his sixth season with the Lightning after four productive years with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The 6’4″ left winger has netted 20 or more goals in a season on six occasions, but he has suffered through the worst campaign of his career this year.

He has just five goals and 15 points through 57 games. His role has been reduced significantly, and he has even been on the receiving end of several healthy scratches in recent games.

Buffalo defenseman Christian Ehrhoff had his ear sliced open by a puck in the Sabres 5-3 loss to the Flyers on Sunday. Ehrhoff took some close up pictures of the ear both before and after to show us just another reason why hockey players are the toughest SOBs. He received 40-or-so stitches to put it back together.
