CJHL expected to lift Frost ban

Controversial hockey player agent David Frost might soon be allowed back into Central Junior Hockey League arenas.

CJHL commissioner Mac MacLean and other league executives are considering an arrangement that would let Frost attend CJHL games, but would forbid the agent from entering areas restricted to players, coaches and game officials.

As a stipulation, MacLean said the Pembroke Lumber Kings, owned by NHL player and Frost client Sheldon Keefe, would be required to post a bond that would be returned only if the agent abided by the new regulations.

"He could sit in the stands and scream and holler all he wants," said MacLean.

The league could finalize details of the arrangement as early as today, including the amount of the bond.

Frost was handed an indefinite suspension by the league last month following an incident at the Jim Durrell Complex where the agent criticized a referee in an area restricted to league officials.

Frost countered by threatening legal action against the league, saying that he needs to attend CJHL games as part of his job as a player agent.

MacLean said the threat of a lawsuit was not a factor in the league's consideration of allowing Frost to return to CJHL games.

Frost is a friend and agent of ex-NHL player Mike Danton, who was sentenced to 71/2 years in prison by a U.S. court last month for his role in a murder-for-hire plot that prosecutors believed targeted Frost.
