"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] authorities confirmed to a Russian news service on Tuesday that they want to deport Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov.

Deportation was the suspected motive behind the decision by ICE to detain Voynov last week after he finished serving his 90-day sentence for domestic violence, this is the first official confirmation of the government's intentions."
