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 at FCI Sandstone, a Minnesota prison.  After petitioning to be moved to a Canadian prison since 2005, 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.

A source has told TSN that Danton, who spent parts of three seasons playing for the St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils, is now seriously considering a return to professional hockey.

In 87 career NHL games, the 28-year old has nine goals and five assists while picking up 182 penalty minutes.  He was the Devils fifth round pick, 135th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry draft.
