Jarret Stoll, a center with Los Angeles Kings, has been charged with felony cocaine possession following his arrest two months ago in Las Vegas, Nev.

The Clark County district attorney's office charged Stoll, 32, with one count of possession of a controlled substance.

According to a police report, on April 17 Stoll admitted to possessing 3.3 grams of cocaine and several capsules of ecstasy during a routine search at MGM Grand's Wet Republic pool.

According to an Associated Press story, District Attorney Steven Wolfson wouldn't comment on why the charge only included cocaine possession.

Stoll's attorney, David Chesnoff, told AP he has had discussions with Wolfson and hopes the case will be resolved shortly.

Stoll is scheduled to appear in court July 1. If he's convicted, the charge carries the possibility of up to four years in prison or probation.
