Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov had surgery last week to repair a torn Achilles tendon, L.A. Kings Insider reported Wednesday.

Voynov, who is suspended by the NHL, was injured "in a recreational activity," the website said. Recovery time could be at least four months.

Voynov was suspended by the NHL after his arrest on felony domestic violence charges on Oct. 20. He is free on a $50,000 bond.

He was seen on crutches and with a cast on his right leg at a pretrial hearing Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Voynov, 25, played six games this season.
