David Frost, the man who was the center of a murder-for-hire plot by former NHLer Mike Danton, resigned as an NHL player agent on Tuesday.

"Dave Frost has resigned as an NHLPA Certified Agent. The NHLPA will make no further comment on this matter," Ian Penny, NHLPA associate counsel, said in a statement.

According to The Canadian Press, Frost's list of clients was small, including Danton and Sheldon Keefe as the most familiar names.

The Danton-Frost story resurfaced last week after Danton asked for a judge to reconsider a 7½-year prison sentence he got for plotting to kill Frost.

Bizarre details of the murder-for-hire also unfolded last week. Taped jailhouse recordings between Danton and Frost were released as part of an investigative report that aired on "CBC: the fifth estate." In the recordings, Frost apparently tells Danton to deny that the agent was the target of the murder and to blame his parents for his troubles.
