Created: 12/18/2013 6:16 PM

Wild goaltender Josh Harding has been placed on Injured Reserve and will miss at least the next three games. 

Harding has multiple sclerosis and must miss a week. 

"Over the next week, Josh will make a minor adjustment to his treatment protocol," General Manager Chuck Fletcher said. "Josh feels great and he looks forward to rejoining our team for our game in Winnipeg on December 27."

Harding leads the NHL in goals-against average and is tied for the league lead with 3 shutouts.

The Wild recalled goalie Johan Gustafsson from Iowa to take Harding's spot on the roster.
