The Wild sent goalie Johan Gustafsson back to the AHL Iowa Wild on Sunday morning, a sign that Josh Harding is healthy enough to dress in the Wild's Monday night game against Chicago. Gustafsson was called up Friday after Harding was injured in the team's Thursday night game, and Gustafsson was the backup Saturday night while Harding was out with a lower body injury.
