Minnesota Wild send recovering goalie Josh Harding on conditioning stint to AHL affiliate

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have sent goalie Josh Harding on a conditioning assignment to the AHL.

Harding hasn't played since Feb. 6, when he soon after developed complications from medication he was taking for multiple sclerosis. Harding was diagnosed with the disease last summer, but he reported no initial problems and posted a 24-save shutout in his 2013 debut on Jan. 20 against Dallas.

With starter Niklas Backstrom playing well and the shortened season making the playoff chase as tight as ever, the Wild have given Harding time all the needs to recover. He resumed practicing with the team last week.

The Wild's AHL affiliate, the Houston Aeros, finish the regular season this weekend with games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
