Slava Fetisov On Slava Voynov

from Geneen Pipher of Hockey VIPs,

Former NHL star and Hockey Hall of Famer Vyacheslav Fetisov, who now serves in the Russian senate, said Voynov has to accept responsibility for his actions.

“I think he got off light,” the Detroit Red Wings legend told Russia’s TASS news agency.  “[Voynov] laid hands on a woman and he has to answer for it. And it will be a lesson for everyone. I could never let myself hit a woman in my life and I never will.”

As for his future prospects, Fetisov said it is unclear how this incident will affect Voynov’s career but suggested other players should learn from his mistakes.

“It is difficult to tell if [the incident] influences his further career or not,” he said.  “I can only assume Voynov will continue playing in the United States, but I don’t know his plans.  He must draw the right conclusions and go through this serious test [first].

“He has been under the pressure of public attention and the media for a long time.  For others, I’m sure, it will be a didactic moment.”
