ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Minnesota Wild have recalled goaltender Anton Khudobin (koo-DOH'-bin) from the minors while backup Josh Harding recovers from an injury.

Khudobin was recalled Tuesday from Houston of the AHL. He's 4-2 with a 1.77 goals against average in six games for the Aeros. Khudobin was a seventh-round pick in 2004 by the Wild out of Kazakhstan.

Harding has unspecified soreness in his lower body and was being held out of Tuesday's practice. Harding has played in two games, with starter Niklas Backstrom playing in nine.

The Wild host Nashville on Wednesday, still looking for their first win in regulation. They're 3-0 at home, all by overtime or shootout, and 0-8 on the road.
