Comstock/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll was arrested Friday for suspected cocaine possession at the MGM Grand Hotel's Wet Republic pool complex.

Stoll was held at the Clark County Detention Center. He was released from custody Friday night, an officer confirmed to's Katie Strang.

Stoll also was suspected of possessing Ecstasy, and NHL security was notified of the situation.

The Kings issued a statement late Friday, saying they were aware of the reports.

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation," the team's statement said. "While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

Kings Defenseman Robyn Regehr Announces Retirement

Comstock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr announced he plans to retire.

The 34-year-old Regehr told reporters after the Kings final game of the season Saturday that "I'm probably not going to play again."

“He’s not only a good player, he’s a great person, and the best thing about when we got Robyn here was there’s a lot of young defensemen here, and if you look at their seasons, they’re going to learn a lot from Robyn Regehr, all those young players,” Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said. “Robyn and Greener are the quarterbacks back there in the locker room and in terms of professionalism, and every one of those other guys, they’re going to miss Robyn. They’re going to have to take a step forward now.”

When Saturday's game finished, Kings center Jarret Stoll handed the puck to Regehr.

Regehr has played 15 NHL seasons with the Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres and the Kings. During that time he's been to two Stanley Cups, winning one, and played in 1,088 games while recording 199 points.

Flames Clinch Playoff Berth, Eliminate Defending Champs

Comstock/Thinkstock(CALGARY, Alberta) -- The defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings have been eliminated and the Flames are in the playoffs.

The Kings fell to the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Thursday night after Jiri Hudler's two-goal performance.

"What an amazing feeling. After we scored that empty-netter, the building was electric," Hudler said.

Calgary went into the game up two points in the standings on Los Angeles and could not afford to be tied with the loss.

"I'm very proud of them. We believed in training camp. We really believed," said Flames coach Bob Hartley.

Flames goalie Jonas Hiller, who had 33 saves in the victory, said: "To be able to beat the defending Stanley Cup champions to make the playoffs makes it even more special. It starts sinking in that we're going to be playing a few more games. I'm really happy. I'm happy for myself. I'm happy for the team. I'm happy for all of Calgary."

Kings Recall Center Mike Richards from the AHL

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- After a two-month absence, the Los Angeles Kings have recalled former top-line center Mike Richards from their AHL affiliate.

Despite being a key contributor for the Kings during their two Stanley Cup Championships over the past three seasons, his decline in production forced the Kings to waive the former All-Star and Olympian.

The Kings offense has been struggling lately, losing three out of their last four contests. The organization is hoping that reinserting Richards into the lineup will give the team a boost they desperately need.

"You've got to produce," coach Darryl Sutter said Saturday. "At the end of the day, the guys have played 20-some games and we're into the stretch part and they have one or no goals. We're having trouble scoring. The guys have got to produce. That's just being honest."

At his best, Richards was one of the better two-play players in the NHL during his time with the Philadelphia Flyers and during his previous tenure with the Kings.

The 30-year-old Richards is also in the middle of a 12-year contract through 2020 that carries an annual cap hit of $5.75 million.

Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his ninth shutout of the season, stopping all 31 shots he faced, while Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was 17-of-18 in save attempts. Los Angeles outshot Pittsburgh in regulation, 31-16.

Pittsburgh is set to travel up the Pacific Coast on Monday Night to take on the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles will head to the Rocky Mountains to take on the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday Night.
