Ron Hextall says the Philadelphia Flyers are dealing with a matter involving forward Jori Lehtera and they have contacted the NHL about the situation.

“We have spoken with Jori Lehtera and the league office regarding the reports out of Finland, and will reserve any further comment on the matter at this time," the Flyers general manager said on Wednesday.

Police in Finland have questioned Lehtera about his possible involvement in a cocaine ring, as Finnish news outlet MTV reported on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old forward, who has denied being involved in a crime, is one of 23 suspects in a case that centers on two kilograms of cocaine, according to the report. Some of the suspects were arrested at Lehtera's summer home this offseason, but he wasn't there at the time.

Lehtera was acquired by the Flyers in the Brayden Schenn trade at the 2017 draft.
