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.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
