Great news for the Minnesota Wild on Thursday.

Harding, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year, was placed on injured reserve in mid-February after his body didn't react well to medication he was on.

On Thursday, he was back on the ice for an optional practice for the first time in over a month. While there is no timetable for his return, Harding tells the Star Tribune that "it was an exciting day."

Per the Pioneer Press, Harding thinks he and his doctors have found a plan that will allow him to continue feeling well, "and we're going to keep going on it and hopefully keep feeling good."
