Wild re-signs goalie Harding for one year
The Minnesota Wild have re-signed backup goalie Josh Harding to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.
The deal was announced Wednesday.
The 26-year-old Harding went 9-12 with a 3.05 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage with one shutout in 25 games last season playing behind Niklas Backstrom.
Harding was a restricted free agent whose qualifying offer from last month was set to expire on Thursday.
