NHL player charged for assaulting spouse

A December 15 article of ESPN LA stated that hockey defenseman of the Los Angeles Kings, Slava Voynov, was charged in California after he was suspected of physically abusing his wife.

According to a court judge in Los Angeles, the charge against the 24-year-old hockey player will progress due to adequate evidence. An officer of the Redondo Beach Police testified that Marta Varlamova was brutally assaulted by Voynov. Marta needed several stitches to fix the wound she sustained above her left eye as a result of Voynov’s attack. Voynov was prevented from participating his team’s activity after his arrest. He is scheduled for a court trial on December 29.
