Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor stemming from a domestic violence incident with his wife after a Halloween party.

Voynov entered the plea Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to a count of corporal injury to a spouse. Lawyers said terms of the plea call for three years of probation.

The Russian Olympian had been charged with corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury after an argument at a party attended by other Kings players.

Prosecutors say Voynov choked and hit his wife and pushed her into a TV in their Redondo Beach bedroom. A cut over her eye required eight stitches.
