Keith Ballard's latest concussion has made him worry about his post-hockey future.
"I'm not ready to decide that stuff, but knowing what we know about concussions, I have to think about the long-term," Ballard said. "I've had three in 14 months, five in five years, not to mention all the times you get hit and say, 'I've got my bell rung,' and you’re dizzy for a period. That happens probably a lot more than people know. I have to think about the long-term effects, but again, I'm not ready to make that decision yet. But answering it honestly, yeah, I'm going to think about it." Ballard is still experiencing symptoms from the head injury he sustained on Dec. 9. As you probably expect, there's no timetable for his return, but it unfortunately wouldn't be surprising if he misses the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign. Jan 5 - 7:00 PM
