Medvedev was stopped at 2:45 a.m. for a traffic violation and then arrested for suspicion of DUI. He has not been charged and is no longer in custody, police told NBCPhiladelphia.

"I heard a report on it, but I don't know any more than that," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said Wednesday at Skate Zone. "I'm certainly not going to comment on it at this point."

Medvedev, 33, will become a free agent this offseason after signing a one-year deal with the Flyers last offseason. Medvedev was a healthy scratch for 14 of the Flyers' final 15 regular-season games. He had four goals and nine assists in 45 games.

When asked if the Flyers are considering re-signing Medvedev, regardless of the report, Hextall said, "We haven't totally made those decisions yet but I'd say probably we're leaning towards not."
