Harding back on ice for Wild, but no timetable yet for his return to net

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has been making progress toward a return to playing.

Harding took part in the team skate before the Wild hosted Ottawa on Tuesday. He said the plan is for him to participate in practice on Wednesday. Harding has not played since Dec. 31, due to his recovery from an adjustment to his multiple sclerosis treatment.

There's no timetable yet for his next game in the net.

Harding leads the NHL with a 1.66 goals against average. Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper have played in his place. Kuemper was slated for his second straight start on Tuesday against the Senators after posting a shutout on Sunday at Nashville.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
