News: A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday that Voynov has been charged with one felony count of corporal injury to spouse, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. Voynov's lawyer said he didn't want to provide a comment at this time. Impact: After investigating the circumstances surrounding Voynov's Oct. 20 domestic violence arrest, the Redondo Beach Police Department confirmed that Voynov had caused great bodily injury to his wife, who suffered harm to her "eyebrow, cheek and neck," according to the release from the DA office. The police department indicated that their investigation will remain ongoing, but given the felony charge that Voynov is now facing, which would carry a maximum sentence of nine years in prison if he's convicted, it's looking increasingly likely that the blueliner won't suit up for the Kings again this season. Voynov is set to make his first court appearance to contest the charge Dec. 1.(RotoWire, )

News: Voynov figures to remain in limbo until at least a Dec. 1 court appearance, CBC reports. "His legal situation continues to be somewhat uncertain," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said. "We're kind of waiting to see if there are developments there, but there's no certainty there will be before the beginning part of December. We're kind of playing it day by day." Impact: Voynov has been suspended without pay since his Oct. 20 arrest, though no charges have been filed yet. The Los Angeles district attorney has until Dec. 1 to file any charges, at which point there may begin to be some clarity around his situation going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: The NHL says it hasn't reached an agreement with the players' union about salary-cap relief for the Los Angeles Kings stemming from Voynov's legal situation. Impact: The defenseman was accused of domestic violence and arrested Oct. 20. He has been suspended with pay since and has not been charged. He is due in court Dec. 1, and the Los Angeles district attorney has until then to file charges. During his suspension, $4.17 million is counted against the Kings' salary cap. Los Angeles has twice had to play with 17 skaters instead of 18 because of cap problems. (STATS, 5:43pm)
