Voynov will be arraigned on December 1st and could face up to 9 years in state prison if convicted as charged. Voynov says he is "disappointed" in the decision from Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. Voynov's lawyer Craig Renetzky says that the Kings star "expects to be cleared" in court.
Voynov's wife Marta Varlamova reiterated these statements, saying she was "stunned" by the charges and expects her husband to be cleared.
Voynov was suspended indefinitely by the NHL during the investigation and has not played a game since October 19th. The Kings have played short-handed due to cap implications from the suspension and have sought temporary cap relief from the NHL, but received none. They may continue to play short-handed, as it will be a couple weeks before this case is solved.
