Interview with Slava Voynov – and a few LA Kings make cameos

LA Kings’ rookie Slava Voynov doesn’t speak much English, yet that hasn’t stopped the Russian-born defenseman from doing several interviews on MayorsManor over the last few seasons. In the video below though, we might be pushing the boundaries a bit, as we attempted to record him talking about superstitions, eating on the road, which teammates like to tease him, what he knows about the New Jersey Devils…oh, and a few other players drop in for some unexpected cameos…

Bonus points if you can name the player who offered up a big smile when walking by.

  1. Looked like Nolan with the smile.

  2. Scratch that. Just watched again and Nolan was in the background changing.

  3. It’s someone from “The Black Aces” is my guess. Not a familiar face!

  4. KingsFan on EastCoastTime says

    No idea who that is…

  5. Anyone else who speaks/understands Russian catch what Matt said? Made me lol like a 12 year old boy.

  6. I was surprised. Slava’s English is at least functional. Maybe my expectations were too low, cause I heard an interview with him a couple years ago, but I’m glad he’s improved in that regard.

  7. Brittany says

    Looked like Jake Muzzin with the smile, I think.

  8. Looks like Brownie with the smile to me : )

  9. fuzzerson says

    It was Jake Muzzin.

  10. MaryKate says

    Jake Muzzin with the smile! And Martin Jones walked by! So proud of the Manch boys!
