ST. PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has been making progress toward a return to playing.

Harding took part in the team skate before the Wild hosted Ottawa on Tuesday. He said the plan is for him to participate in practice on Wednesday. Harding has not played since Dec. 31, due to his recovery from an adjustment to his multiple sclerosis treatment.

There's no timetable yet for his next game in the net.

Harding leads the NHL with a 1.66 goals against average. Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper have played in his place. Kuemper was slated for his second straight start on Tuesday against the Senators after posting a shutout on Sunday at Nashville.
