Harding to start Thursday; Kassian on waivers

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild player moves, Wild practice Updated: November 2, 2011 - 11:41 AM

After giving up only one goal in two victories over Detroit, Josh Harding was told by coach Mike Yeo that he'll be starting in goal Thursday night against Vancouver at the X.

The Canucks come to town tomorrow, and it will be Harding's fourth start of the season -- and his first  against a team not named Detroit. Any goalie who gets his team four points in two games when that team's scored three goals deserves to stick.

With Matt Kassian only having played twice this season and scratched in eight straight, the Wild will place the left wing on waivers this morning with the intent of sending him to AHL Houston.

This morning, the Wild told Marco Scandella, Justin Falk and Nick Johnson they can move out of the team hotel and find homes in Minnesota.

Also, Clayton Stoner is practicing today.
