Apparently he's now wearing the "A".
I'm very happy for him, he's been playing decent this season!

Good job Keith!

I didn't know you could sport an 'A' from the press box. :P


Seriously, super duper happy for him. He's been playing like a bawss.

Ballard is a good guy, he took all the crap from AV early on in his time here and didnt complain.

Worked hard and made it to AV's good book so the A is deserved. :P

HFBoards is hardly a source.

It's a picture of him in a jersey with an A. If you look at the team photo that's already been posted in the Millionaire's thread here, you'll see he doesn't have it on there.

In other words, it's some promotional (and candid) photos taken in a one time jersey that don't signify anything official.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

Hmmm but doesn't it look like Kes has it? We all know Kes won't be playing in that game so perhaps Ballard gets it for that game only?

Off topic but I WANT one of those jerseys!

He's so proud of receiving the A, he decided he didn't need to look at the camera when the still was taken


What a guy!

Interesting that Lu is in the picture and that Schneider has been cropped off... Let the rumour mills begin! (tongue in cheek of course).

Good for him, he always seemed to be a locker-room favourite and now I guess he's our only veteran left on the blueline. He's been in this league a long time. With Malhotra and Salo gone, Ballard is our only real veteran left apart from the Sedins.

Not really... Bieksa, Alberts, and Burrows are all older than him, and Hamhuis is the same age. Bieksa and Burrows already have A's, though, and Alberts is a fringe player so I suppose you could make a case for both him and Hamhuis to wear a letter.

Perhaps he'll be wearing it if Bieksa can't go.... in that case, we'd be missing three alternates (Bieksa, Kesler, Malhotra). Daniel's one, Burrows replaced Manny, and then we'd have two temporarily vacant spots... unless of course Bieksa plays.

Is he just an alternate while Bieksa (an alternate) is out? Is an alternate captain being traded? Should I shutup?

How old do you think he is?

Ballard's been playing great and all, but why him over Hammer? You'd think the guy who's been top-4 since he got here would be first choice?

I'd laugh if Ballard borrowed Burrows or Kesler's jersey for a prank.

Daniel Sedin should demand a trade. He's just as good as Henrik and his voice is deeper.

Daniel for Captain!

Good for Ballard though, he had a tough first couple years in Van.

The seats in the background match the jersey colours perfectly. What a great photo.

It's not the official team picture, it's just from the Canucks instagram account.

Is he just an alternate while Bieksa (an alternate) is out? Is an alternate captain being traded? Should I shutup?

That's possible, but the team pic has Bieksa, Kesler, Daniel and Burrows with A's, so Daniel and Burrows would likely still come first. They may want to split the A's up between more than one line, but we'll have to wait and see what happens on Saturday.
