Minnesota Wild goaltenders Josh Harding and Niklas Backstrom are healthy and will be ready for training camp and the start of the regular season, general manager Chuck Fletcher told the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune on Thursday.
"Everything's a go with both goalies," Fletcher told reporter Michael Russo. "Everybody seems to be feeling pretty good, and at this stage, knock on wood, all of our players who were banged up at the end of the season is feeling better. Josh has felt good. Right now we're not expecting any issues for anybody with respect to passing training-camp medicals."
Harding played his final game of last season Dec. 31 and then was sidelined by complications related to multiple sclerosis. Backstrom last played Jan. 30 and had surgery to repair an abdominal injury March 25.
