Vyacheslav Leonidovich "Slava" Voynov (Russian: Вячесла́в Леони́дович Войно́в; born January 15, 1990) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Voynov began his career with Traktor Chelyabinsk, playing his rookie Russian Superleague season in 2006–07. After a second campaign with Traktor, he was selected 32nd overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The Los Angeles Kings, in their efforts to translate his cyrillic spelled name into the latin alphabet, have spelled his first name Viatcheslav. In the same off-season, he was drafted fifth overall by the Moncton Wildcats, a junior club, in the 2008 Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Import Draft. However, because of his two seasons of professional experience in Russia, Voynov was eligible to forego the junior process in North America, and was assigned to the Kings' minor league affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL. He recorded 8 goals and 23 points in his AHL rookie season. The following campaign, he improved to 29 points in 79 games. In 2011, he was selected to represent the Eastern Conference at the 2011 AHL All-Star Game.

His first and second NHL goals were scored on October 27, 2011 against Kari Lehtonen of the Dallas Stars. On June 11th, 2012, Voynov won the Stanley Cup with the Kings in just his first NHL season.
