Ballard is a serviceable second pairing defenceman. He had one bad year recovering from hip surgury and his value on HF has been defined by it since. He'll never be a big point producer but he's a good skater, moves the puck out of his zone very well, blocks a ton of shots, finishes every check and will drop the gloves if so inclined. Jack of all trades, master of none.
