Slava Voynov D LA 4 weeks ago

Voynov (Achilles) accepted a plea deal Thursday for his domestic assault charges and will spend 90 days in jail and face three years of probation, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.

Voynov was arrested on charges of domestic violence back in October and suspended indefinitely by the league. The defenseman has yet to be reinstated by the NHL, which will conduct its own investigation before making a ruling on his eligibility. Further complicating matters is that the Kings have instituted their own suspension on Voynov for suffering a torn Achilles tendon in a non-hockey related activity this past spring. His future with the Kings and in the NHL remains up in the air, and it's uncertain when a resolution might be reached.

Rehab for that type of injury is usually around four months but the Kings haven't released any estimate as of yet. Voynov's status for the upcoming season will hinge more on the trial outcome but the Achilles injury is another hurdle he may have to eventually clear.

Voynov (suspension) was fined $100,000 by the NHL for his impermissible participation in Tuesday's optional skate, Josh Cooper of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Under the terms of Voynov's indefinite suspension, the blueliner isn't allowed to participate in any team-related functions or activities, which led the league to come down hard with the fine. He'll still be able to use the Kings' facilities, but won't be permitted to have contact with his teammates until the suspension is lifted.

Voynov (suspension) joined the Kings on the ice for Tuesday's optional skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Voynov had been away from the team since Oct. 20 after he had been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. He was later charged with a felony count of corporal injury to spouse and had his first preliminary hearing Monday, which was supposed to bar him from participating in practice with the team, per an authorization from the league office. It's not clear if the NHL has since revised its ruling or if Voynov is openly violating the terms of his suspension, but if it's the ladder, expect the league office to provide comment on the matter.
