Two-time NHL Stanley Cup champion Kevin Stevens pleaded guilty for his role in a federal drug conspiracy case in Massachusetts.

According to the Boston Globe, the 51-year-old Stevens pleaded guilty on Thursday in Boston federal court to one count of conspiring to sell oxycodone.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office accused Stevens and another man in an indictment of participating in a plot to illegally sell the opioid painkiller in several cities from August 2015 through March 2016.

As part of his plea agreement, Stevens admitted to selling 175-30 mg pills of oxycodone.

Stevens attorney said the professional hockey player had fought opioid addiction for years stemming from his use of painkillers to manage injuries sustained during his playing career.

Over the course of his 15-year NHL career, the Massachusetts native won back to back Stanley Cups in the 1991-92 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
