It came as a shock to many in the hockey community. Last October, just before the start of the NHL season, Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding announced he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. But he’s vowed not to let the disease slow him down.
Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding won a major NHL Award Friday – the Masterton Trophy. It’s a direct result of the way he’s approached his battle with multiple sclerosis (MS), and the way he’s inspired others as a result. When Josh Harding was told he had MS last fall, one of the hardest parts was telling other people. “It was tough. I didn’t know how to do it, I didn’t know how everybody would kind of view me after that. But I’m glad that I did,” Harding said.
