Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported the contract is worth $5.7 million, with an annual average value of $1.9 million.
Harding set a career-high with 34 games played last season for the Wild. He has been the backup to Niklas Backstrom for four of the past five seasons (he missed the 2010-11 campaign with a knee injury).
He has a career save percentage of .916 and a goals against average of 2.65. Harding celebrated his 28th birthday Monday, and was a second-round pick in the 2002 NHL Draft by the Wild.
There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
