The league announced Thursday the arbitrator's decision, which will allow Voynov to return at the mid-point of the 2019-20 season.

"The decision also confirms and reaffirms the Commissioner’s broad authority under the CBA and applicable League Rules to establish — and to enforce — appropriate standards of conduct for individuals involved in the National Hockey League.”
