NHL suspends Voynov for 2019-20 season
The NHL suspended defenseman Slava Voynov on Tuesday for the 201920 season and 2020 playoffs after determining he committed acts of domestic violence.
Commissioner Gary Bettman suspended Voynov for what the league called unacceptable off-ice conduct.
The 29-year-old Russian could have his eligibility restored on July 1, 2020, based on good behavior.
A spokesman said the NHL Players’ Association is reviewing the decision.
