Slava Voynov Jersey Card

Lots of long-standing story lines in the NHL, such as expansion talks (now official), the status of the Arizona Coyotes, and the Slava Voynov saga. Parallel to his time in court in an alleged domestic violence case, the Los Angeles Kings have now suspended him for having incurred an injury they deem was not hockey-related, freeing cap space towards the free agent market - where their top priority is likely signing their own restricted free agents.

It's been a trying year for Voynov, his wife, and the team, who failed to make the playoffs after winning the Stanley Cup the previous season; hopefully it all gets sorted out sooner than later.

This marks the third time I feature him since the charges arose, and all three cards featured have shown the same Kings black (home) uniform as that pictured on this card from Upper Deck's 2013-14 Series 2 set (card #GJ-SV of the UD Game Jersey sub-set):

It's also the second jersey card, and both times the game-worn swatch has been white. Ironic how his life is nothing but black and white for the moment.
