Slava Voynov was the lone goal scorer for the Kings in their 2-1 loss to the Canucks on Saturday night.

There's a considerable amount of offensive upside in the 24-year-old, though you wouldn't really be able to tell by this season's production. Voynov's goal, the fourth of the season, was his first since Nov. 14, and he now has 30 points. Jeff Carter and Marian Gaborik assisted on the second-period marker.
Apr 6 - 12:59 AM

Slava Voynov has three assists in his last 10 games.

Voynov took a step forward in his sophomore campaign with 25 points in 48 games last season, but he hasn't been quite as effective in 2013-14. At the least, we expect him to maintain his current pace, which would allow him to narrowly surpass the 30-point mark.

Kings defenseman Slava Voynov scored a goal and added an assist for the Kings in a 3-2 victory over the Islanders Thursday.

Fantasy players who selected the young blue liner in drafts have been disappointed by his slow start, but thanks to a three-game streak he has now recorded eight points in 19 contests, which is reasonable. Tyler Toffoli continued his hot streak with a goal in the win while Tanner Pearson also found the back of the net.

Slava Voynov was the only goal scorer for the Kings in a 2-1 shootout win over the Predators Thursday.

The young, talented blueliner got off to a slow start this season, but has now registered a goal in two straight games, a sign he may be breaking out of his funk.

Kings GM Dean Lombardi has faith Slava Voynov will overcome his early season struggles.

Voynov's issues have been magnified by the fact that the Kings signed him to a six-year, $25 million contract over the summer. "I think he knows that he can be better and that's the most important thing," Lombardi said. He noted that signing the contract itself is a big adjustment for the 23-year-old defenseman and he will eventually adapt. Voynov should be regarded as a candidate to reach the 30-point mark this season.

The Los Angeles Kings and Slava Voynov have reached an agreement on a six-year contract.

The Kings did not release financial terms, but multiple media outlets reported it is worth $25 million. Voynov was scheduled to be a restricted free agent on July 5 but eschewed the open market and an offer from his hometown team in the KHL to re-up long term with the Kings. The $4.17 million annual salary probably didn't hurt, either. Voynov became a rising star this year amid multiple injuries to the Kings' blueline and stands to be a top-20 defenseman in all formats next season.
Tue, Jun 18, 2013 04:20:00 PM is reporting that Slava Voynov is close to re-signing with the Los Angeles Kings.

Voynov is slated to become a restricted free agent on July 5 and he reportedly has an offer on the table from Trakor Chelyabinsk of the KHL, his hometown team, but wants to re-sign with the Kings. "Slava is in contract talks with Los Angeles and we should come to an agreement in the very near future," his agent Alexander Tyzhnykh said. The 23-year-old defenseman had six goals and 25 points in 48 regular season games but his offensive game really took off in the playoffs with six goals, including four game winners, and 13 points in 18 games. Grab him as a top-20 defenseman in pools next season.

KHL club Traktor Chelyabinsk has sent a contract offer to Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov.

"All the talk about Voynov was absolutely serious," Traktor GM Evgeny Tsybuk said. "We made an offer earlier, but he didn't want to hold talks until the end of the season. We are patiently waiting for his decision. If the deal is sealed, it will be an unreal reality." Voynov will be a restricted free agent in July, so whatever offer he has on the table could be used as leverage in his negotiations with the Kings. The 23-year-old blueliner had 25 points in 48 games during the regular season and he broke out in a big way in the playoffs, where he had 13 points over 18 contests.

Slava Voynov had an assist on Saturday.

Voynov was outstanding offensively in the playoffs as the defenseman had six goals and 13 points in 18 games including four game winners. He managed six goals and 25 points in 48 games during the regular season but look for a 45-50 season in 2013-14 if he can remain healthy.

Slava Voynov set some Kings' franchise records on Tuesday.

With five goals, Voynov is now has more goals in a single playoff run than any other Kings defensemen in franchise history. He also holds the Kings' single postseason record for game-winning goals with four. In total, Voynov has five career game-winning goals in the playoffs, which ties him with Wayne Gretzky for second place in the Kings' career leaderboard. Luc Robitaille is the franchise leader in that category with nine career franchise game-winners in the postseason.

Slava Voynov scored the game-winning goal in the Kings’ 3-1 Game 3 victory over the Blackhawks to pit the Western Conference Finals at 2-1.

Voynov’s impressive postseason continues, as the goal was his fifth of the playoffs for a total of 11 points. The 23-year-old defenseman has been a huge part of the Kings’ offense, whenever they’ve found success, and he’ll continue to log heavy minutes as this series progresses. Despite the absence of Mike Richards, other Kings stepped up including Jeff Carter, who added two assists and was a plus-2, and Justin Williams, who opened the scoring with his sixth of the postseason.

Slava Voynov, a 23-year-old defenseman from Russia, has scored two more playoff goals this postseason than Anze Kopitar and one more than Dustin Brown.

"I like playing offense and to help our forwards score goals and get some points, but it's not my job to score," Voynov said. "It's nice passes, and my teammates help me." Last year, Voynov scored one playoff goal as the Kings won the Stanley Cup. Scoring isn't his job, but it sure seems like it's in his job description. He has seven points, including four assists, and has the best plus-minus ratio on the Kings at plus 7 this posteason. "I feel great because we're still playing," Voynov said. "That's exciting for me. Go to next round. (Keep) winning games." The Kings wouldn't be in the Western Conference finals - which start today in Chicago - without goaltender Jonathan Quick. But you wonder what state the Kings would be in without Voynov bailing out the lackluster offense on so many occasions. Voynov has three game-winners this postseason and four goals, including an overtime goal against the Blues in St. Louis.

Slava Voynov assisted on both of the Kings' goals in their 2-1 victory in Game 7 on Tuesday.

Voynov ended up with three goals and six points in the second round. He's developing into a great offensive defenseman and should push the 40-point milestone in 2013-14.

In two low-scoring playoff series, Los Angeles defenseman Slava Voynov has established himself as an offensive force.

There hasn't been much room for the Kings to shoot in these playoffs, not with Voynov and the Kings facing a couple of teams, the St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks, that like to clog the middle. Yet Voynov, 23, has found enough space to score four goals in the postseason, tied for best among NHL defensemen. His offensive output has helped the Kings gain a 3-2 lead over San Jose in a Western Conference semifinal series. "For whatever reason, he finds those corners," Sharks center Joe Thornton said. "And he's very good at it."
