Just a quick update from the Wild: Goaltender Josh Harding and the Wild have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, eliminating the need for today’s arbitration hearing in Toronto.
Harding, 25, appeared in 19 games with the Wild last season and was 3-9-1 with a 2.21 GAA and .929 saves percentage. Harding has appeared in 58 NHL games making 43 starts for Minnesota in parts of four seasons. Russo reports the contract will pay Harding $1.1 million next season.
