    • Josh Harding has been skating with Wild players and Minnesota-based NHLers prior to the start of training camp.
      Advice: Michael Russo of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune was encouraged by what he saw. Harding hasn't played an NHL game since Dec. 31, but he was practicing every day during Minnesota's playoff series against Chicago. He said he feels great, but he's still a pretty high injury risk because of his battle with multiple sclerosis.

    • Josh Harding is projected to be ready for training camp.
      Advice: Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said that Niklas Backstrom will be ready to go as well. "Everything's a go with both goalies," Fletcher said referring to Backstrom and Harding. "Everybody seems to be feeling pretty good, and at this stage, knock on wood, all of our players who were banged up at the end of the season is feeling better. Josh has felt good. Right now we're not expecting any issues for anybody with respect to passing training camp medicals." Harding missed the last 40 games of the regular season and the playoffs because of his battle with multiple sclerosis. He was playing very well in 2013-14 before his illness put him on the sidelines. Harding could be sharing the crease with Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper this season.

    • Nazem Kadri wants to elevate his game in 2014-15.
      Advice: "My expectation for myself is to go up (in production) every year," he said. "No one has higher expectations of me than me, so I'm working as hard as I can to get there. You always work hard to get better, but now your body is a bit more mature, and you know it better, so it's easier to put on pounds or take them off, whatever you need." Kadri feels his ideal weight is around 190 pounds. He's been working hard on his shot and release during the summer. Kadri appears confident that he can improve on the 20 goals and 50 points he picked up in 78 games last campaign.
