Keith Ballard is leaning towards retiring from hockey.
Ballard is still battling the symptoms of the concussion he suffered on December 9th and although he's leaning towards retirement, he isn't ready to make any official announcement just yet. "I’m just trying to get healthy," he said. "If I make a full recovery from this one, I’ll chalk it up to good luck. If I’m hit like this again, I’m a little freaked out about what would happen the next time." Aug 29 - 10:09 AM
