Watch: Josh Harding returns to the X for ‘Let’s Play Hockey’ call

Harding was back at the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday.

Former Wild goaltender Josh Harding was back at the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday, leading the arena in the “Let’s Play hockey” ritual before puck drop.

Harding was drafted by Minnesota in 2002 and he spent his entire career with the Wild.

The former netminder was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012 and the disease forced him to retire from the game three-years later at the age of 31.

According to Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press, Harding just finished his second season as the goaltender coach at Edina High School.
