MOSCOW, September 22 /TASS/. Russian Ice-Hockey Player Vyacheslav Voynov will start training in Novogorsk near Moscow on Wednesday, Roman Rotenberg, the first vice-president of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, told TASS.
"On Wednesday, Voynov will start training in Novogorsk under the supervision of the senior coach and other experts. It is going to be his first training session. His task is to feel the ice as soon as possible. For the moment, he simply has to return to the ice and enjoy playing hockey. He has not skated since March," Rotenberg stressed.
Voynov, 25, has arrived in Moscow. On Wednesday, he will hold talks with Traktor (Chelyabinsk) which owns the rights on the player in the KHL.
Russian ice hockey star from NHL’s Los Angeles Kings Vyacheslav 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.
