Josh Harding (multiple sclerosis) is feeling well after being unable to play since December 31.

The hope is that Harding will be available for the start of training camp. Harding had a 1.65 GAA and .933 save percentage in 29 games, but unfortunately not clear how much he can be counted on to play in 2014-15.

Josh Harding's health situation adds complications to Minnesota's goaltending.

He didn't play after Dec. 31 because of problems caused by multiple sclerosis, but he stated last month that he has no intention of retiring. Harding has one year left on his current contract, while Darcy Kuemper will be a restricted free agent in July and Ilya Bryzgalov will be unrestricted. The Wild also have Niklas Backstrom locked up for another two seasons, but he has struggled to stay in the lineup as well because of injuries. Who starts for the Wild on opening night next season should be considered a big question mark at this time.

It is not known if Harding, who has been out since December 31, will be well enough to play in the second round. The Wild are in trouble in net as Harding, Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper are all hurt. Ilya Bryzgalov is the starting goalie with John Curry as his backup for now which should not inspire fear in the Chicago Blackhawks.

He faced some shots and did puck-handling drills with goalie coach Bob Mason after skating for the first time on Tuesday.

It's not like he's a week away from rejoining us here, but it's a good first step." It's unclear when he'll be able to return.
