News: The Minnesota Wild have assigned goalie Josh Harding to their AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild. The move was made Tuesday after Harding cleared waivers. With Darcy Kuemper and Niklas Backstrom the top two goalies, there's no room on the Wild roster for now. Impact: The 30-year-old was taken off injured reserve Monday. He hasn't skated with the Wild this season. Harding broke his right foot in an incident off the ice a few days before training camp and was put on a suspended list. His last appearance in a game was Dec. 31. Illness related to his multiple sclerosis kept him out of action the rest of the way. Harding finished 18-7-3 with three shutouts in 29 games and led the NHL with a 1.65 goals-against average.(STATS, 8:18pm)

News: Harding was assigned to AHL Iowa after clearing waivers Tuesday, but he does not plan to report, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: The Wild still own Harding's rights after he passed thorough waivers without being claimed, but it does not seem he is thrilled about playing in the AHL. Harding's next step is uncertain at some point, but he and the Wild will need to find some sort of resolution before he plays again.(RotoWire, )

News: Harding cleared waivers Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. Impact: Harding posted a sparkling 1.66 GAA last season, but having started just 29 games over the last two seasons and coming off a team-imposed suspension, no other team was willing to take a chance on him. He will report to AHL Iowa and figures to see plenty of action there.(RotoWire, )

News: The Wild activated Harding (foot) from IR on Monday and placed him on waivers. Impact: Harding was placed on suspension following an offseason altercation with a teammate, but he's still working his way back from a foot injury sustained in the skirmish. Unless another team opts to take a chance on Harding, who has missed significant time in each of the past two seasons while undergoing treatment for multiple sclerosis, he'll report to AHL Iowa after clearing waivers to get some game experience.(RotoWire, )
