                          === Wild sign D Ballard ===
 
 St.  Paul,  MN (Sports Network) -  Just a few  hours after being bought out by
 Vancouver,  Keith  Ballard has  found a  new home as  the defenseman agreed to
 terms with the Minnesota Wild on Thursday.
 
 Ballard  had the  final two  years  of his  contract bought  out by  Vancouver
 earlier in the day, and will now call Minnesota his new home as he agreed to a
 two-year deal with the team.
 
 The contract will be made official on Friday.
 
 Ballard,  30,  had spent the  past three seasons  with the Canucks. During the
 shortened 2013 campaign, he posted just two assists in 36 games.
 
 For  his career, the Minnesota native and 2002 first-round pick has totaled 36
 goals and 129 assists in 545 games with Phoenix, Florida and Vancouver.
