MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. Russian ice hockey star from NHL’s Los Angeles Kings Slava Voynov has arrived to Moscow from the United States, where the US immigration authorities sought to deport him.
The leadership of the Traktor Chelyabinsk hockey club will meet him soon, said the first vice president of the club that has the rights to the player in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
"Slava has returned to Moscow and we will shortly meet with him. We’ll conduct all negotiations with other clubs on the transfer of the rights to the player after a personal meeting with him," Sergei Gomolyako told Tass.
Russia’s CSKA and SKA hockey clubs show interest in the 25-year-old player.
Voynov was arrested overnight to October 20, 2014 by police of the Californian Redondo Beach after bringing to hospital his wife Marta Varlamova with bruises and a cut wound under the eye.
Medics suspected household violence and summoned police officers who detained Voynov. Later he was released on bail. At the same time an investigation was launched against the hockey player, and a criminal case was opened as a result.
An out-of-court settlement was reached at a court session in Los Angeles on July 2. Voynov pleaded guilty in petty offence. On September 4 he was released from custody early, but was immediately taken into custody by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement that sought to deport the hockey player. The immigration authorities refused to release him on bail.
On September 17, Voynov said he wanted to return to Russia. In case of his departure, the contract with Los Angeles Kings will be ended automatically. Earlier, American media said Voynov’s voluntary departure gave him an opportunity to get back to the United States in the future.
