The fine was handed down after Voynov took part in the morning skate at the Kings' training complex in El Segundo and was in the team's dressing room afterward. Kings General Manager
Lombardi said in an interview earlier that Voynov had gotten on the ice earlier than scheduled and that it was an optional practice. However, the morning skate included all of the Kings.
The NHL's news release on the matter said: "Voynov skated with teammates today during a Club practice. Such activity is in direct contravention of the terms of the suspension levied Oct. 20, which permit Mr. Voynov to use club facilities and work with team personnel but prohibit his participation in any team-related functions or activities."
Later, the Kings released a statement: "This was clearly a mistake on our part and we accept full responsiblity. It is incumbent upon us to be more vigilant in managing this situation to ensure that Slava's allowable training activities always remain separarte from the team."
