Harding Placed On Injured Reserve
Wild goaltender Josh Harding has been placed on Injured Reserve and recalled netminder Johan Gustafsson from Iowa of the AHL

The Minnesota Wild has placed goaltender Josh Harding on Injured Reserve and recalled goaltender Johan Gustafsson from the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL).

“Over the next week, Josh will make a minor adjustment to his treatment protocol,” Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher said. “Josh feels great and he looks forward to rejoining our team for our game in Winnipeg on Dec. 27.”

Harding, 29, made 29 saves through overtime and stopped all three Canucks shootout attempts in a 3-2 shootout win versus Vancouver Tuesday night in Saint Paul, moving to 18-5-3 in 27 games this season. The native of Regina, Sask., ranks first in the NHL in goals-against average (1.51), tied for first in shutouts (3), second in save percentage (.939) and is tied for second in wins (18).

Gustafsson, 21, is 4-4-0 with a 2.95 GAA, a .898 SV% and one shutout in nine games with Iowa this season. The 6-foot-2, 199-pound native of Koping, Sweden, went 20-13-0 with a 1.70 GAA, a .929 SV% and four shutouts in 33 games for Lulea HF in Sweden’s Elite League last season. Gustafsson was selected by the Wild in the sixth round (159th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He has not appeared in an NHL game and wears sweater No. 31 with Minnesota.
