Slava Voynov has pleaded no contest to a single misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse.

The agreement was finalized this morning at a hearing in Torrance, CA .

The hearing just ended, and Voynov and his attorney declined comment as he left the courtroom. Voynov remains indefinitely suspended by the NHL, as well as under a team-imposed, injury-related suspension.

We'll update here with any further information. Comments are closed on this post; thank you for your understanding.

UPDATE: The Los Angeles Kings have released a statement.

We believe the legal system has effectively resolved this matter and the punishment is fair and just. Any act of domestic violence is unacceptable. As an organization, the prevention of domestic violence and the education of our players and employees is of paramount importance. We will continue to actively develop and implement a strategy to deliver this message. We remain steadfast in our support of the National Hockey League as they now begin their own investigative process. Until that is complete we will withhold further comment.
