Minnesota Wild Josh Harding is the NHL’s third star of November

On Monday night Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding got his third shutout of the season. And if that wasn’t enough for Harding he now has another accolade to add to his growing list.

The Wild goalie was named the NHL’s third star of the month after posting an 8-2-2 record with a 1.88 goals-against average and .926 save percentage in November.

Harding’s 14 wins this season are a career-high, and his .939 save percentage and three shutouts are the top in the league.

He also has only allowed two or fewer goals in nine of 12 appearances. Harding also went 6-1-0 in seven games at the Xcel Energy Center, where he has a 32-10-2 record in 44 career starts.

Chicago Blackhawk’s Patrick Kane was named the first star of the month, and Pittsburgh Penguins Evgeni Malkin was named the second star.

Harding and the Wild play Kane and the Blackhawks on Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center at 7:00 PM CST. You can watch the game on Fox Sports North or listen at NHL Game Radio.
