Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll was arrested Friday in Las Vegas on suspicion of possession of drugs, police told The Associated Press.

"We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll," the Kings said in a statement. "Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

The report said Stoll was arrested for suspected cocaine possession at the MGM Grand Hotel's Wet Republic pool complex. Las Vegas police Lt. Michael Mauntel told the AP Stoll is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.

Stoll, 32, has been with the Kings since the 2008-09 season and won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. The Kings did not make the playoffs this season.

He played 73 games this season, scoring six goals, and can become an unrestircted free agent on July 1.
