Mike Danton signs with HC Orli Znojmo

December 16, 2011

 

Polarizing figure, ex-prisoner, troubled player, tortured man: Mike Danton has signed with HC Orli Znojmo in the Czech Republic. He had been playing for a team in Sweden, IFK Ore. It’s unclear why he’s changing teams, and countries, mid-season. It’s not worth my time or yours to rehash the Mike Danton story. But what is interesting to note is how his new teammates are reacting to their latest reenforcement. Interesting times.

HC Orli Znojmo is not a party to the Czech Extraliga. Rather, it is a part of the the Austrian Hockey League. It departed that league in 2009, selling its rights to HC Kometa Brno.
