East St. Louis, Ill. – The sentencing date for former St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton has been rescheduled from this Friday to November 8.

The office of U.S. District Judge William Stiehl says he had a scheduling conflict and had to change the hearing date.

Danton pleaded guilty in July to charges related to a murder-for-hire plot. Prosecutors have said that Danton wanted his agent, David Frost, killed.

Danton faces up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Last month, a federal jury acquitted co-defendant Katie Wolfmeyer of charges that she helped Danton in the plot.
