10:00 AM PDT -- As expected, Voynov pled not guilty. According to court docs, Voynov and his wife have been living together since the incident, though she did not show up with him. He's due back in court on December 15.
L.A. Kings star Slava Voynov just arrived to a L.A. courthouse where he's scheduled to be arraigned on a felony domestic violence charge stemming from an alleged altercation with his wife.
Voynov was silent on his way into the courtroom ... but he's expected to plead not guilty to the charge.
As we previously reported, the 24-year-old was arrested on October 20th after allegedly beating his wife so badly, she was hospitalized with injuries to her eyebrow, cheek and neck. Sources tell us she required several stitches to close facial wounds.
As for Slava, he is adamant he didn't attack his wife -- and claims officials misunderstood her when she was trying to explain that she simply "fell down" at their L.A. home because she only speaks Russian.
