TSN has learned that former NHL player Mike Danton, who has been serving time in a Federal prison in the United States, is back in Canada and could be a free man very shortly.
The Brampton, Ontario native pled guilty to “murder-for-hire” charges in November of 2004. He has served over four years of his seven and a half year sentence in a Minnesota prison. After petitioning to be moved to a Canadian prison, Danton finally got his wish on March 19th as he was transferred to Kingston Penitentiary.
Under Canadian law, Danton is now eligible for full parole.
