Los Angeles Kings Statement On Slava Voynov

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

These developments are of great concern to our organization.  We support the NHL’s decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely during this process, and we will continue to take appropriate action as the legal proceedings and the investigation by the NHL take their course.


added 2:20pm, from Rich Hammond of the OC Register,

Lt. Joe Hoffman of the Redondo Beach Police Department gave an update this morning regarding the arrest of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov.

Here is Hoffman's statement, with some follow-up questions.

``Last night, at around 11:25 p.m., the Redondo Beach Police Department received a call on our business line -- not our 911 line -- from a resident in the 800 block of Avenue C, concerning a woman screaming and heard crying. An exact address of where this incident was occurring was not provided, however officers did respond to the area and were unable to make contact with anybody. Later information was received that the woman who had been crying had possibly left in a vehicle prior to the arrival of the responding police officers.

``A short time after that, at around 1 a.m. this morning, the Redondo Beach Police Department received a call from the Torrance Police Department concerning an adult female that was at Little Company of Mary hospital with an injury that was possibly in need of law enforcement. The injury possibly being the result of a crime was what prompted a law-enforcement response, and that possibly the crime had been committed in the city of Redondo Beach.

Report From TMZ On Slava Voynov Arrest

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TMZ,

The woman who was allegedly attacked by L.A. Kings star Slava Voynov was injured so badly, she was rushed to the hospital ... where staffers called the cops on Voynov ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement tells us ... Voynov was actually arrested at the hospital in Torrance, CA around 1 AM Monday morning on suspicion of domestic violence.

We're told Voynov had accompanied the woman to the hospital -- and shortly after they arrived, hospital staffers called authorities to report Voynov as the person suspected of attacking the woman.

Our sources tell us the woman claims she was in a relationship with Voynov.

Voynov was hauled to a nearby jail -- where he was eventually released on $50k bail.

Branding The Canadiens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Club 1909 (www.club1909.com) was launched last week, a multi-faceted fan membership program that intends to align Montreal’s brand around the world along the likes of the other big franchise hitters in the world of sports. 

Sitting in his Bell Centre office last week during an interview with ESPN.com, Kevin Gilmore, the team’s executive vice-president and chief operating officer, explained the genesis for Club 1909 and why a team with automatic sellouts and sky-high TV ratings felt the need to branch out even more. 

"Sometimes, you have to look at your business and kind of turn it sideways to see what it is now," Gilmore said. "The challenge from a marketing standpoint was to say, 'Guys, let’s look at what we do, who we are and what we represent.' We spent a while on it, we talked to some outside people and to people inside here. 

"Basically the conclusion was that for the lack of a better word, we’re a legacy team, we’re synonymous with the sport. Same way the Yankees and Red Sox are with baseball, the Cowboys and Packers with football. I’m sure the Leafs would argue the Leafs and Canadiens with hockey and that’s a fair comment. We said, 'If that’s what we are, we need to start acting a little more like that.'"
