Audio: Quick hits with Keith Ballard

Native Minnesotan and former Minnesota Golden Gopher Keith Ballard signed a two-year, three million dollar contract with the Minnesota Wild over the summer and joined a locker room with an established veteran core and an impressive array of talented young players whose degree of improvement will have some say in the direction of the club in 2013-14. The former Canuck, Panther and Coyote answered questions about his homecoming with LA Kings Insider this morning while discussing the challenges of playing against the Los Angeles Kings.
