Ryan Malone of the Tampa Bay Lightning has been arrested on charges of cocaine possession and driving under the influence.

Malone was arrested early Saturday morning in Tampa, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times from beat writer Damian Cristodero.

"We are aware of the situation concerning Ryan Malone this morning," Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said in a statement. "Ryan will not travel with the team to Washington today, but beyond that we cannot comment further at this time."

The 34-year-old power forward has one more season remaining on a contract that will pay him $2.5 million next year.

Malone has struggled this season with just five goals and 15 points through 57 games.

He was being held on $2,500 bond, according to the report.
