Danton Wants To Come Back To The NHL
See more about the case here http://www.cbc.ca/sports/indepth/danton/
Danton's parole ends Friday and he will be free and clear to travel wherever he pleases. He was freed from a U.S. prison in March 2009. He has been out of the league for 6 years and is now playing for the St. Mary's Huskies in Halifax. Far away from the bright lights of the NHL.
Danton realizes it would be a long climb back and knows teams would be careful since he has a conviction. There's no Oakland Raiders type of owner in the NHL so it'll be hard for him to get a sniff from anyone. He basically blackballed himself right out of the league. You never know, athletes in every sport have gotten a second chance. If it is shown he could help a team out I'm sure they would be quick to sign him. Hockey fans stay tuned.
