Just days after being charged with felony drug possession of cocaine, Kings forward Jarret Stoll has seen his charge reduced to two misdemeanors, according to ESPN.


Told that these two misdemeanors are not drug-related charges. That could be critical for any potential immigration/visa issues for Stoll

Stoll was arrested April 17 in Las Vegas after attempting to enter the pool area at the MGM Grand.

In addition to cocaine possession, Stoll was also arrested on MDMA possession. However, there was reportedly only mention of the cocaine possession in the complaint filed by Clark County’s district attorney.

The 33-year-old veteran just wrapped the final year of his contract in Los Angeles, and is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The Kings are reportedly unlikely to re-sign him.

Update: Per ESPN, Stoll’s community service will be with the Salvation Army, organizing hockey programs for at-risk youths in the Las Vegas area.

“My focus remains on hockey and I am looking forward to getting back on the ice next season,” he said in a statement. “I am grateful for the chance to offer guidance and share positive life lessons to kids as part of the resolution of this matter.”
