KHL blocked Visnovsky staying in Slovan for this very reason, and more topical for us Kings fans prospect LW Nikolai Prokhorkin was sent back to KHL this season for that reason.

At no point before this season could Voynov have left for KHL, any rumours anybody might have heard were BS. However this season with be the first since signing that Voynov has the option to head back to Russia. That being said, I consider it HIGHLY unlikely that Voynov heads back to KHL now, Kings will pay the man.
DL gave him chioce if i recall correctly.. go to AHL or KHL by lockout...
