Keith Ballard has made his retirement official.
Ballard hasn't played since Dec. 9, 2014 because of a concussion. "The headaches aren't bad like they were," Ballard said this week. "The last time I had them really bad was in August. I didn't do any real physical activity in the summer other than going for walks, but nothing close to summer hockey training. One day, we were playing tag with the kids outside and I started getting real dizzy and bad headaches. I had to lay down, and that seemed to trigger other things." He played 10 seasons in his career and appeared in 604 games. Ballard is back in college at the University of Minnesota, where he is looking to get a degree in sports management. We wish him the best. Thu, Dec 10, 2015 09:33:00 AM
