From the Star Tribune, which reports that Wild goalie Josh Harding left Saturday’s game with AHL Iowa after two periods due to a serious case of dehydration:

It was so serious, he was taken to the hospital and remained hospitalized until he was released late Sunday. Multiple sources say this is related to his multiple sclerosis. Harding is listed day-to-day with dehydration, but this will likely be one of those indefinite day-to-day’s. It’s very unlikely he will play another game for Iowa until this is figured out.

Iowa has recalled Johan Gustafsson from ECHL Alaska to back up John Curry tonight in Charlotte and the Wild was making arrangements on getting Harding back to Minnesota.

Harding cleared waivers and was assigned to Iowa last month. The 30-year-old has not played an NHL game this season, after reportedly kicking a wall and suffering an injury in September.

He is a pending unrestricted free agent.
