Wild place G Josh Harding on IR to adjust multiple sclerosis medication

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have placed goalie Josh Harding on injured reserve to allow him to make adjustments to the medication he takes to treat multiple sclerosis.

The Wild made the announcement Wednesday night, one day after Harding was superb in a shootout victory over Vancouver. He made 29 saves to beat the Canucks, but GM Chuck Fletcher says Harding needs to "make minor adjustments" to his medication.

Harding will have to miss at least a week while on injured reserve. That means he will be out at least three games.

Fletcher says he expects Harding to return Dec. 27 against Winnipeg. Johan Gustafsson has been recalled from Iowa of the AHL to take Harding's spot.

Harding leads the NHL with a 1.51 goals-against average and .939 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
