Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the team confirmed Thursday.
Multiple sclerosis attacks the body's immune system and affects the central nervous system. Symptoms can include balance and vision problems, as well as fatigue.
Harding, 28, is undergoing treatment. He told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he plans to keep playing. He signed a three-year, $5.7 million contract this summer.
