Stanley Cup Champion Avoids Prison In Drug Case

Former Boston  Bruin Kevin Stevens is avoiding prison time after pleading guilty to  federal drug charges.  

Prosecutors say Stevens was in possession of 175  pills of oxycodone when he was arrested in 2015.  

They allege that  Stevens was selling the drug regularly, and the defense says it was  because of an addiction that started with an on-ice injury.  

Prosecutors  asked for a year in prison for the longtime NHL star, but the judge  instead sentenced him to probation.
