Wild: Harding back at practice, could start AHL games next week


For the first time in two months, goalie Josh Harding skated with the Wild in a full practice today.

Harding has been out since early February, trying to adjust to the medication he takes to battle multiple sclerosis.

"It felt good," Harding said after practice. "It's exciting to be back with the boys. It was all fun ... and I think I held my own out there. I'm just excited to be back."

Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports that it's likely Harding will start a pair of games next week with the Wild's American Hockey League affiliate in Houston before returning starting again for the Wild.

"It's all about reading and reacting," he said. "The way I felt today ... I don't think it'll take too, too long. I'm definitely on the right track."

"He looked pretty good," Coach Mike Yeo added. "He looked really good."
