from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
Josh Harding heard a “disturbing pop,” threw off his blocker and gripped the net in dread Friday night in St. Louis.
“I kind of went into shock. I knew something was wrong. I was hoping it wasn’t this,” the Wild goaltender said dejectedly.
Harding’s worst fear was confirmed Saturday morning when doctors determined he tore both the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his right knee. After swelling in his MCL subsides, Harding will undergo reconstructive surgery that could cause him to miss the season, although he refused to rule out a return.
“It’s going to be a battle. I’m ready to take on that battle, though,” Harding said. “It’s not like I’m going to just lay in my bed and feel sorry for myself. That’s not going to help anything.”
