The Minnesota Wild announced on Tuesday that goaltender Josh Harding had cleared waivers and will report to their AHL-affiliate Iowa Wild.
Harding, 30, has not played yet this season after incurring a broken foot whilst kicking a wall during the off-season. He was initially suspended before being placed on injured reserve. Harding was activated on Monday before being waived.
In 29 games last season, Harding posted an 18-7-3 record with a 1.66 goals against average and a .933 save percentage. He's in the final season of a three-year, $5.7 million contract.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012, the Regina, Saskatchewan native recived the 2013 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy given to the NHL player who best exemplifies perserverance and sportsmanship.
