According to Lisa Dillman of the L.A. Times, the deal is worth $25 million.
Voynov was a pending restricted free agent. The 23-year-old Russian defenseman finished the playoffs with six goals and seven assists in 18 games. He also had 25 points — three more than the team’s top blue-liner, Drew Doughty — in 48 regular-season games.
The Kings still have a number of other RFAs to re-sign, including defenseman Jake Muzzin and forward Trevor Lewis.
Also of note, with the salary cap falling to $64.3 million, Los Angeles may not have room to re-sign veteran d-man Rob Scuderi, a pending unrestricted free agent.
