ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)
The Minnesota Wild have recalled goalie Darcy Kuemper from their AHL affiliate.
Kuemper is tied for first in the AHL with a .929 save percentage for Iowa.
Harding played the last two games for the Wild after missing four straight games to adjust to medication for multiple sclerosis. Backstrom was in the net for those. Harding leads the NHL in goals against average.
