MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. SKA ice hockey club has reached an agreement with the Chelyabinsk-based club Tractor on the transfer of Vyacheslav Voynov. The NHL player, who returned to his native country from the United States in mid-September, is to sign a three-year contract with St. Petersburg’s club, SKA Vice-President Roman Rotenberg told TASS on Saturday.
"Today [Chelyabinsk regional Governor and Tractor President] Boris Dubrovsky and SKA President Gennady Timchenko held talks on the transfer of ice hockey Voynov for a reasonable compensation," Rotenberg said. "On Monday Voynov is signing a long-term contract with the SKA up to the Olympic Games in South Korea."
"Of great importance for us is that he should soon blend into the team and gain conditions," he said. "The long-term agreement reflects significance of performance of the player who won two Stanley Cup trophies and who will play in the Russian team at the 2018 Olympics."
The transfer agreement is expected to be signed after Voynov’s transfer card is delivered to Russia from the United States.
Voynov, who started his career in the Tractor ice hockey club, was a member of the Russian national team playing at last year’s Winter Olympic Games in Sochi and was one of the key contributors for his NHL’s Los Angeles Kings club prestigious Stanley Cup trophies in 2012 and 2014. Following the 2012-2013 season Voynov signed with Los Angeles Kings a six-year contract worth $25 million.
In October 2014 he was arrested on the suspicion of domestic violence against his wife, Marta Varlamova. On July 2, 2015 an out-of-court settlement was achieved. He pled guilty to a minor offence. Voynov was jailed on July 7 to be released ahead of time on September 4. Later in September he returned to Russia.
