S&P Presents: Keith Ballard


Matt and Blake catch up with former Canuck Keith Ballard for an emotional interview filled with introspection, honesty and the perspective of an ex-player who recently turned 40.

From his early days at fishing lodge near the Minnesota-Ontario border, to an impromptu meeting with #99 and #4 in Arizona, to his time in Vancouver that didn't go as planned, Ballard gives us an honest assessment of his life and times in hockey. 

Ballard struggled mightily with concussions, both in Vancouver and in retirement. He takes us through those struggles, which still prompt emotion.
He's a youth hockey coach now, and anyone coaching the sport will want to hear what he says about the three different age groups he tutors and what he tries to teach them.
