Monarchs report, minus one

The Manchester Monarchs reported today for pre-camp testing in New Hampshire. Andrei Loktionov reported, even though his status had been in question because of a published report that he had signed to play in the KHL. The only player on the training-camp roster not to report today was Slava Voynov, who had been assigned to the Monarchs just before the lockout. I’ll pass along more about Voynov’s possible status as I hear it. The Monarchs will have their first on-ice training-camp session tomorrow.

[UPDATE: I’m now told that the Kings/Monarchs expect Voynov to report to Manchester on Sunday.]
