Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev has been charged with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance and use or possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Sam Carchidi of the Inquirer.

The 33-year-old Russian signed a one-year deal with the Flyers last May after seven season in the KHL. Medvedev didn't appear to be part of the Flyers' future. He was a healthy scratch for 14 of the team's final 15 games.
