NHL: LA Kings Reach Six-Year Deal With Slava Voynov

Jun 18 2013, 11:27pm CDT | by

The Los Angeles Kings reached a new six-year, $25 million contract with Russian defenseman Slava Voynov on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Kings reached a new six-year, $25 million contract with Russian defenseman Slava Voynov on Tuesday. 

The deal was confirmed by the Los Angeles Times' Lisa Dillman on Twitter. 

"Slava Voynov deal done. Six years, $25 million."

Brian Stubits of CBS Sports notes the contract is worth $4.167 million on a salary-cap hit, making it a great deal for both Voynov and the Kings. The new deal also represents a significant increase in compensation, as Voynov made only $787,000 per season over the two years of his initial NHL deal. 

According to Sports Illustrated, the 23-year-old Siberian would have been a restricted free agent this summer after his breakout playoff performance for the Kings, whose Stanley Cup title defense ended in the Western Conference finals against Chicago. 

He solidified his reputation as one of the NHL's top puck-moving defensemen with 13 points during the postseason, tying for the club scoring lead. He set single-season franchise records with six playoff goals by a defenseman and four game-winning goals. 

By locking up defenseman Robyn Regehr to a two-year extension during the playoffs, LA Kings general manager Dean Lombardi made sure to keep him off the market when free agency opens early next month. The same thing can now be said of Voynov. 

After the Kings were eliminated from playoff contention by the eventual Western Conference champion Chicago Blackhawks, Lombardi said the current roster is a tight group and that they want to stay together. 

"There's no question this is a very tight group. It's one of the best places in the country to live. Players want to be here because we're a good team and we want to win.

"I'm confident these guys want to stay together. You're not going to let good young players go for nothing."

Defenseman Jake Muzzin is among the team's remaining restricted free agents. The group also includes defensemen Alec Martinez and Keaton Ellerby; forwards Kyle Clifford, Trevor Lewis and Jordan Nolan; and backup goalie Jonathan Bernier. 

Voynov was a second-round pick (No. 32 overall) by the Kings in the 2008 NHL Draft.

Why a Healthy Matt Greene Would Provide Significant Boost to Los Angeles Kings

Aug 28 2014 5:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Though he hasn’t had an opportunity to show it consistently as of late, Matt Greene is a key component of the Los Angeles Kings’ tough and relentless identity. Over the past two campaigns, he’s only played 43 of a possible 130 regular-season games due to back and upper-body injuries. He has suited up for 29 postseason contests in that span, but his impact—while mostly positive—was limited by those nagging issues. The 31-year-old’s return to full health would represent qui ...
