Jarret Stoll was arrested for cocaine and MDMA possession at a Las Vegas pool party in mid-April, and conveniently chased out of town once free agency opened up.  

Mike Richards was arrested at the Canadian border with oxycodone pills and managed to keep the arrest under wraps until June 26th when the Kings found out at the NHL Draft.  By June 29th the man’s contract was terminated.
