MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Russian citizen, ice-hockey player Vyacheslav (Slava) Voynov, who until recently had been playing for the Los Angeles Kings, hopes to get a permission from the Ice Hockey League to go on training on ice after he was disqualified for reasons of family violence, said Alexander Tyzhnykh, who acts as a proxy for the ice hockey player.
On October 22, local police of Redondo Beach in California detained Voynov on suspicion of domestic abuse. In a short while, Voinov was released on bail worth $50,000. No official charges were brought against him. Nevertheless, the National Hockey League has disqualified Voinov indefinitely.
The administration of the Los Angeles Kings has approved the NHL decision. Voynov remains in California, pending an investigation into the case. Court hearings have been set for December 1.
"Negotiations are going on with NHL which has been asked to let Voynov at least continue training," Tyzhnykh said. The Los Angeles Kings will be away from Los Angeles for a week, playing scheduled games elsewhere. In the meantime, Voynov might quietly resume training on ice by himself, Tyzhnykh said.
A US lawyer for Vyacheslav Voynov's wife said the woman would not make accusations of violence against her husband. The lawyer admitted that the woman did receive some injuries, but they were not inflicted by her husband, the lawyer said, citing Voynov's wife's testomony.
"Police have not collected enough evidence to start court proceedings,” Tyzhnykh told TASS. He has dismissed the situation as "nonsense." But, California has its own judicial rules, and Voynov will have to go through all its stages," Tyzhnykh said. "In my opinion, the problem will be settled within a week," Tyzhnykh said.
Voynov has been playing for the Los Angeles ice hockey clubs since 2008. Over the past three seasons, he had played for the Los Angeles Kings.
Vyacheslav Voynov is two times winner of the Stanley Cup — an ice hockey club trophy, awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) playoffs champion.
