Nobody would have been surprised if Josh Harding decided to take some time away from the game after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. But the 29-year-old took a different approach. With the help of doctors, Harding was able to find a treatment program that enabled him to continue his career and he played 10 games for the Minnesota Wild during the shortened 2013 season.
The Wild netminder started Harding’s Hope, a charity to raise awareness about MS and funds to support people living with the disease. And as part of the fundraising for the charity, he participated in the 21st annual NHLPA Golf Classic.
THN’s Adam Proteau caught up with Harding at the tournament, to discuss the diagnosis, his charity, the Wild and more.
