Vyacheslav Voynov at Olympics despite domestic abuse conviction

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) Slava Voynov is at the Olympics despite his conviction for domestic abuse. In a way, he is at the Olympics because of it. The defenseman remains indefinitely suspended from the National Hockey League over a 2014 incident that got him sentenced to 90 days in jail on a misdemeanor charge of corporal injury to a spouse. Were he still in the league, he’d have to watch on TV as the Olympics hosts its first tournament without NHL players since 1994.
