Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
It’s not too often you see the two-pad stack in NHL practices anymore, but it’s also not often you call upon a 43-year-old to fasten up the pads for the first time in 15 years.
Jim Mill, the Wild’s assistant to the GM and former minor-league goaltender, was parachuted into the Wild’s practice Monday at AMSOIL Arena after backup goalie Josh Harding injured his left ankle at the Wild’s team-building exercise the day before.
The Wild wouldn’t say how Harding injured his ankle and wouldn’t speculate on the nature of the injury until he’s examined by team doctors.
But Harding, who suffered torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral knee ligaments last preseason only months after a season-ending hip injury, believes it’s minor.
