Mike Danton to play Canadian university hockey

Paroled ex-NHLer eligible to play for Saint Mary's University

Kudos to the Saint Mary’s Huskies for playing their part in the rehabilitaion of Mike Danton, the former NHL player who was jailed for plotting to kill his agent, Dave Frost. But surely the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) might want to rethink eligibility rules that allow a guy with the equivalent of a full pro season under his belt to suit up against its players—most of whom competed no higher than major junior. When Danton will take the ice is not yet known, as SMU is still clearing the necessary hurdles with the national parole board to bring him to Halifax. And the CIS has yet to weigh in on the issue.
