The Wild recalled goalie Darcy Kuemper from their AHL affiliate

before Tuesday’s game in Vancouver.

Harding had a shutout against Dallas but gave up five goals at

with the disease this summer, but hadn’t experienced any setbacks

or complications before now.

The Wild also reassigned defenseman Marco Scandella to the AHL,

activated defenseman Jared Spurgeon off injured reserve and placed

forward Matt Kassian on waivers.
