Wild goalie Harding leaves after collision
Minnesota goalie Josh Harding was carried off the ice after a collision midway through the first period in the Wild's preseason game against the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

Harding, playing for the first time since surgery to repair a partially torn hip labrum, was bowled over by Blues forward Brad Boyes, who had been checked into Harding by Wild defenseman Greg Zanon. Harding went over on his back, threw off his glove and blocker and began motioning toward his hip. He was down on his back for several minutes before being carried off by teammates.

Harding, the backup to starter Niklas Backstrom, partially tore the hip labrum in training camp last season. He played through the injury for much of last season, appearing in 25 games and finishing with a 9-12-0 record and 3.05 goals-against average.
