Former NHL defenseman Slava Voynov has been trying to make an NHL comeback since last summer.
There's been plenty of road blocks in doing so and the NHL has just put up another huge road block.
Voynov has been suspended for the entire 2019-20 season and 2020 postseason for "Unacceptable off-ice conduct".
“I have determined that Player Slava Voynov engaged in acts of domestic violence directed at his wife,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a release. “Today’s ruling, while tailored to the specific facts of this case and the individuals involved, is necessary and consistent with the NHL’s strongly-held policy that it cannot and will not tolerate this and similar types of conduct, particularly as directed at a spouse, domestic partner or family member.”
The 29 year old defenseman has played the last three seasons in the KHL and registered 23 points in 39 games last year for St. Petersburg SKA.
