Learning From a Legend

From Kevin Fee of the Grand Forks Herald (via INS News),
Keith Ballard admits he was a little nervous during his first NHL training camp in 2005. Blowing the whistle on the ice was perhaps the greatest NHL player ever, Wayne Gretzky, the Phoenix Coyotes head coach. "It was exciting last year at training camp," said Ballard, a Phoenix defenseman and former University of Minnesota and Lake of the Woods High School star. "I was nervous to be around him. It was fun to come in and give a good impression. Things have gone well since."
