ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has a broken right foot, putting him out indefinitely.

The Wild announced Wednesday the injury was suffered in an off-ice incident. The team said Harding was hurt Sunday but did not specify how.

Harding will not need surgery, but with training camp starting Friday and the opener Oct. 9 the Wild’s tenuous depth in the net is a concern.

Veteran Niklas Backstrom has returned after midsection injuries kept him out of action after January. But restricted free agent Darcy Kuemper has not yet been signed. Harding, who was unavailable after December due to complications from multiple sclerosis, was being counted on as a backup.

The Wild sent a Tweet saying the team has invited unrestricted free-agent Ilya Bryzgalov to training camp on a pro tryout.
