Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Hector M. Guzman has decided that there's enough evidence in the case against Slava Voynov to warrant a trial on the charge of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury.
Voynov had his preliminary hearing on Monday and he will be arraigned on Dec. 29. According to a police officer, Voynov's wife claimed her husband had repeatedly choked, punched, and kicked her. He also allegedly pushed her into a flat screen television. Voynov's wife needed eight stitches to close a wound over her eye and she had bruising on her neck, according to the police. They also found a lot of blood in the bedroom. Lead prosecutor, Frank Dunnick, believes that "there's evidence to suggest prior domestic violence." Dec 15 - 3:32 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have accepted the NHL's $100,000 fine for allowing Slava Voynov to practice on Tuesday.

Voynov isn't allowed to practice with the team while he's serving an indefinite suspension. "This was clearly a mistake on our part and we accept full responsibility," the Kings said in a statement. "It is incumbent upon us to be more vigilant in managing this situation to ensure that Slava's allowable training activities always remain separate from the team."

The NHL issued Slava Voynov a $100,000 fine for violating the terms of his indefinite suspension.

Voynov is currently fighting a felony domestic violence charge. He took place in Tuesday's practice, which is the violation in question. Voynov has been skating with the Kings' injured players and Kings coach Darryl Sutter simply said "was out there early." Sutter also called the practice optional, although the entire team was in attendance. The NHL said Voynov can't participate in "any team-related functions or activities."

Slava Voynov has plead not guilty to the charge of felony domestic violence.

There's a preliminary hearing for the case scheduled for Dec. 15. Voynov has been suspended indefinitely by the league and no longer counts against the Kings' salary cap.

The Los Angeles Kings will receive cap relief as Slava Voynov remains suspended indefinitely.

Voynov has been charged with one felony count of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury. He was suspended after the allegations initially surfaced, but until now his $4,166,667 cap hit was still counting against the Kings. That put Los Angeles in a situation where replacing him was very difficult and it led to them playing shorthanded on multiple occasions.

Slava Voynov has been charged with one felony count of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury.

He will appear in court on Dec. 1. "Mr. Voynov is extremely disappointed that the district attorney's office elected to file charges," said Craig Renetzky, Voynov's attorney. "Mr. Voynov maintains his innocence and looks forward to clearing his name in court. We remain confident." Voynov hasn't played since Oct. 19 because of an indefinite suspension.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and Kings GM Dean Lombardi don't see eye-to-eye on the Slava Voynov cap situation.

Voynov has been suspended indefinitely in light of an alleged incident of domestic violence. Lombardi stands behind the NHL's decision to suspend him, but they have taken issue with the fact that Voynov's cap hit has stuck with the team over the duration of the suspension. "Every team has to manage its salary cap, right?" Bettman offered. "It's just the way it works." Lombardi believes this situation goes beyond what he should reasonably be expected to account for though. "[Bettman] says issue of cap relief not warranted and is just cap management," Lombardi said. "I need to create some space in case [a player] robs a bank."

The Los Angeles Kings are listing Slava Voynov as a non-roster player.

As a result, Voynov no longer counts as part of their 23 player roster. However, the Kings still have to pay him and he still counts against the salary cap.

Slava Voynov's agent, Rolland Hedges, says the Kings defenseman will attempt to have his indefinite suspension lifted.

"The player hasn't been charged with any offense at this point and it's very difficult for the NHL. We understand that," Hedges said. "The NHLPA, we understand that, as well. But there comes a point where the player's rights have to be looked at. From this point forward, the player is going to see what can be done to have the suspension lifted. The player has no control over the criminal prosecution at this point, nor should he." He also mentioned that Voynov believes he's innocent after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence last month.
Nov 6 - 5:22 PM

Slava Voynov's lawyer, Craig Renetzky, is saying that his client did not attack the hospitalized woman in the alleged domestic violence case.

Voynov has been suspended indefinitely after he was arrested by police. He has since been released on bail and has a court date scheduled for Dec. 1. "There was no intentional attack," Renetzky said. "That's just not what we have here. I think it's more of a misunderstanding. I don't think the police completely understood what she was trying to say. She repeatedly asked for (Voynov) to come in and help interpret, and those requests were denied." This case is expected to be presented to the district attorney this week. From there, the district attorney will decided whether or not to charge Voynov.

The Los Angeles Kings are standing behind the NHL's decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely.

The NHL acted after Voynov was arrested following an alleged incident of domestic violence that sent an adult woman to the hospital. While the Kings believe the NHL is acting correctly, they do have questions about what this means for their franchise. More specifically, they aren't sure how this will be handled from a salary cap and roster space perspective. The Kings have looked through the CBA and don't feel it addressed their questions, but they will speak to the league Wednesday.

Slava Voynov has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL.

Voynov was arrested this morning on charges of domestic violence. The NHL is conducting an investigation into the matter. This comes after the intense scrutiny the NFL faced for its handling of its recent domestic violence incidents, including the initial two-game suspension of Ray Rice, which was seen by many as light under the circumstances.

Going into tonight's Game 3, defenseman Slava Voynov has played in 116 games since the first exhibition game on September 15.
