Los Angeles Kings Statement On Slava Voynov

LOS ANGELES – Earlier today, Slava Voynov entered a no-contest plea to a single misdemeanor, domestic violence charge. The Los Angeles Kings have issued the following statement relating to this development:

“We believe the legal system has effectively resolved this matter and the punishment is fair and just. Any act of domestic violence is unacceptable. As an organization, the prevention of domestic violence and the education of our players and employees is of paramount importance. We will continue to actively develop and implement a strategy to deliver this message. We remain steadfast in our support of the National Hockey League as they now begin their own investigative process. Until that is complete we will withhold further comment.”

given the Richards situation, they’re hypocrites.

Yeah but that label really depends on what happens next. Obviously the precise timing of Richards’ termination had a strong relation to July 1. There’s not quite the same rush to deal with Voynov. He’s currently suspended by the league (the DV) and the team (non-hockey related Achilles injury) and I imagine his career here is done. That said, yep, if he laces them up again, well, it won’t look good and frankly, most fans won’t be too happy.
