Philadelphia Flyers forward Jori Lehtera is scheduled to appear in court in January - a specific date has not yet been announced - for his alleged involvement in a Finnish drug ring, according to Sam Carchidi of The Philadephia Inquirer.

Lehtera is reportedly not one of the main suspects in the case, which will begin trial on Dec. 31.

It's unknown if he will miss any time with the Flyers.

The 30-year-old denied any involvement with the cocaine ring in September.

Lehtera has suited up for 24 games this season, recording one goal and two assists.
