Malone was arrested Saturday morning on charges of driving under the influence and cocaine possession.
"We are aware of the situation concerning Ryan Malone this morning," general manager Steve Yzerman said in a statement. "Ryan will not travel with the team to Washington today, but beyond that we cannot comment further at this time." According to a Hillsborough County Sheriff's report, Malone, 34, was arrested at 5:40 Saturday morning, but there were no other immediate details. Malone was being held on $2,500 bond. It has been a difficult season for Malone, who has just five goals, 15 points in 57 games, has been demoted to a fourth line and has been a healthy scratch in the past three games.
