You don't have to worry about that, Vancouver has a curse on all its defensemen. There's a reason why we have to carry 8 NHL d-men on our roster at all times.
Once Ballard leaves, he will be a super durable player again.

Bieksa suffered the same freak injury twice in three seasons, causing him to miss a ton of games.
Hamhuis, having missed only 9 games in his 6 year career, missed almost 20 games in 2010-11 once he came to Vancouver.
And Sami Salo. He is made of glass. He's gone now, so he should never miss a game again.
