Yes, the Wild are off to a great 10-4 start. But another story that continues to develop is how well Josh Harding has been standing out in goal for Minnesota, as he tries to put his multiple sclerosis on the back burner.
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.
Open Arms is a Minnesota nonprofit that cooks and delivers free meals to people living with HIV-AIDS, multiple sclerosis, breast cancer and 60 other diseases.
