Los Angeles Kings: Update from Slava Voynov’s Lawyer

First reported by Hockey News’, Ken Campbell, Slava Voynov’s lawyer, Craig Renetzky, said that he interviewed the victim and its clear to him that there was no crime.

Via The Hockey News:

Craig Renetzky, a criminal lawyer who is representing Voynov in the matter, said the language barrier, both on the part of Voynov and the alleged victim, has created a misunderstanding and that the victim’s injuries that caused her to be hospitalized were the result of an accident. Voynov was arrested early Monday morning at a Los Angeles area hospital after staff at the hospital notified police of a possible domestic abuse case. Voynov was immediately suspended indefinitely by the NHL, but has yet to be charged with anything pending a police investigation.

“Hopefully, the police will get that,” Renetzky said. “And we’re hoping the NHL looks at the new evidence and will lift the suspension. What the police will find out when they talk to her is that the action was not related to Mr. Voynov. I can’t go into complete details, but Mr. Voynov never hit the woman. This is really just a pure accident and we’re going to provide them with some additional evidence we hope they’ll present to the District Attorney’s office. And if they do, based on my experience, they don’t have a case.

Los Angeles Kings: Update from Sutter and Lombardi

It was announced Monday morning by the NHL that Slava Voynov will be suspended indefinitely from all team activities after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

This of course raised some questions for the team.

There is not much that is known about the unfortunate situation, but here is what we do know.

King General Manger Dean Lombardi and Head Coach Darryl Sutter fully support and understand the decision that was made by the NHL.

Sutter said that he does not have to talk about whether or not he talked to Voynov, and how he was before, after and during Sunday’s game. Sutter said he is however concerned about the whole thing, not only from a hockey standpoint but a personal one.

Sutter spoke to Rich Hammond of the OC Register about what will have to be done from a hockey stand point in Voynov’s absence, “Obviously we have to make some adjustments in terms of who plays where and who plays what and who plays how and for how long. We don’t know.”

Los Angeles Kings, Forever a Tight-Knit Group

The Los Angeles Kings have always been known to be a tight-knit group; there for one another on and off the ice. They proved that success in their rise to two Stanley Cup’s in three seasons.

After Tuesday’s practice at Toyota Sports Center when the players were asked by the media, about how the team is doing, after hearing about Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension from the NHL, their responses proved their togetherness once again.

Kings Captain Dustin Brown, spoke to Rich Hammond of the OC Register stating, “As a group in here, we’re focused on what we need to do on the ice. It’s an unfortunate situation. It’s important that we stick together through this.”

Brown also told Hammond how the team is going to get through the distraction, “By just talking about it, how we’re going to handle it as a group. We have a group that has been through a lot, maybe not like this, but we need to lean on past experiences and trust each other that we can refocus. … It’s our job, as players, to focus on what we need to do, and let the legal side of it play out.”
