VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Minnesota goalie Josh Harding has told the Wild he’s feeling a little “off” from medication he takes to fight multiple sclerosis.

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 Detroit and was pulled in the first period Jan. 30 against Chicago after giving up two scores on four shots. Harding was diagnosed with the disease this summer but hadn’t experienced any setbacks or complications before now.

General manager Chuck Fletcher told reporters in Vancouver he’s pleased Harding was open and honest about his condition. He said Harding he may need some time for his body to adapt to the new medication.

The Wild also reassigned defenseman Marco Scandella to the AHL.
