ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The Wild confirmed Thursday that Harding is undergoing treatment for the disease, which attacks the body's immune system and affects the central nervous system. The Star Tribune first reported the news.
General manager Chuck Fletcher said he knows the ``competitive fire'' Harding has used in his hockey career will help him fight this challenge.
MS symptoms can include problems with balance, vision and fatigue. The 28-year-old Harding told the Star Tribune he plans to keep playing. Diagnosed two months ago, Harding resumed on-ice workouts two weeks ago without trouble.
Harding signed a three-year, $5.7 million contract this summer. He played in a career-high 34 games last season.
