4/7/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard is unlikely to return after missing his 10th consecutive game with a groin injury.
Insight: He's not there yet, said coach Mike Yeo. He has nine points in 45 games this season so his fantasy value is near zero.
 
3/27/2014 3:40:00 PM
Description: Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard is doubtful for Thursday's game against St. Louis due to a groin injury.
Insight: He has nine in 45 games this season. Ballard hasn't cracked the double-digit point total since 2009 so his fantasy value is still zero.
 
11/1/2013 11:10:00 AM
Description: Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard is probable for Friday's game against Montreal after recovering from a concussion.
Insight: He has one point in six games this season. Ballard hasn't cracked the double-digit point total since 2009 so his fantasy value is still zero.
 
10/17/2013 1:58:00 PM
Description: Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard s questionable for Thursday's game against Tampa Bay with a head injury.
Insight: Ballard hasn't cracked the double-digit point total since 2009 so his fantasy value is zero.
 
4/5/2013 11:28:00 AM
Description: Vancouver defenseman Keith Ballard is questionable for Saturday's game against Calgary with a small fracture in his foot.
Insight: Ballard's two point total in 27 games makes him unlikely to be on any current fantasy rosters and this injury has kept him as a free agent.
 
3/30/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Vancouver defenseman Keith Ballard is doubtful for Saturday's game against Edmonton with a small fracture in his foot.
Insight: Ballard's two point total in 27 games makes him unlikely to be on any current fantasy rosters and this injury will keep him as a free agent.
 
6/8/2011 12:57:00 PM
Description: Keith Ballard will likely draw into the Canucks' lineup for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. Vancouver Province
Insight: Ballard's usual partner Chris Tanev will likely be a healthy scratch once again, as Canucks coach Alain Vigneault will likely keep the physical Andrew Alberts in the lineup. For whatever reason, Ballard doesn't seem to be a favorite of Vigneault, but he played well when given the opportunity in the previous series against San Jose.
 
4/26/2011 2:28:00 PM
Description: Keith Ballard will return to the Canucks' lineup for Game 7 against Chicago on Tuesday, likely to replace the injured Sami Salo. Globe & Mail
Insight: It doesn't make sense to have a $4 million salary sitting in the press box, but that has more to do with the Canucks' depth on defense. Still, Ballard has a chance to have a big game after underperforming for much of the season.
 
2/23/2011 9:04:00 AM
Description: Ballard returned to the ice Tuesday night after missing six games with a knee injury.
Insight: The defenseman played a full 24 shifts and came away virtually stat-free, just like the rest of the season to date. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/9/2011 2:38:00 AM
Description: Keith Ballard is expected to miss the next two to four weeks with a knee sprain. TSN
Insight: Ballard was tripped from behind by Senators forward Milan Michalek, a trip that appeared to be a borderline slewfoot. The Canucks are also dealing with an injury to Alex Edler, but the good news is that Sami Salo is expected to make his season debut on Saturday against Calgary.
 
2/8/2011 1:07:00 AM
Description: Keith Ballard left Monday's game against Ottawa in the first period with a knee or ankle injury. Vancouver Province
Insight: The picture provided in the link should provide all the description you need. Just don't look at it if you're faint of heart.
 
11/27/2010 12:05:00 PM
Description: Ballard scored his first goal of the season on Friday against the Sharks.
Insight: Ballard has only the one goal in 11 games so far this year as he has found himself in the press box more often then on the ice. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/16/2010 4:52:00 PM
Description: Keith Ballard will be back in the Canucks' lineup on Wednesday against Pittsburgh. Vancouver Sun
Insight: The Canucks have explained that Ballard was a healthy scratch for the last four games, although another report suggested that Ballard still needed to catch up on his conditioning due to injuries. Ballard is paid $4 million per season, so his omission from the Canucks' lineup the last few games is somewhat of a surprise.
 
11/1/2010 7:05:00 PM
Description: Ballard is expected to return to the lineup on Monday against the Devils.
Insight: Ballard is making his return from a concussion that forced him to miss the last five games. Ballard is scoreless in four games so far this year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/24/2010 3:39:00 PM
Description: Keith Ballard is still sidelined with a concussion, while Dan Hamhuis is still sidelined with a foot injury. Vancouver Sun
Insight: Hamhuis will miss Tuesday's game against Colorado, while the Canucks have not been able to provide a timetable for Ballard's return. The Canucks play only one game this week, so you're best to keep any Canucks blueliners on your bench if you can.
 
10/17/2010 2:32:00 AM
Description: Keith Ballard will likely miss the Canucks' next three games with a concussion. Vancouver Sun
Insight: Ballard left Friday's game against Los Angeles with the concussion. Before the injury, he was one of the NHL's top ironmen with 401 consecutive games played.
