Flyers’ Jori Lehtera charged in drug-ring case

The Score

Philadelphia Flyers forward Jori Lehtera was charged Monday with buying drugs from a cocaine distribution ring in his native Finland, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer's Tricia L. Nadolny.

Lehtera is accused of buying eight grams of cocaine over the summer, and prosecutors are seeking a five-month sentence, as first reported by Finnish news outlet MTV.

"We understand Lehtera plans to contest the charges," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an email to the Courier-Post's Dave Isaac. "No current intention to intervene (by the NHL)."
