Josh Harding (born June 18, 1984, in Regina, Saskatchewan) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender playing for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League.
Harding was selected in the second round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft (38th overall) by the Wild. Since his drafting, he played for several minor league teams including three seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings and Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League and most recently with the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League, the Wild's development team. In the 2004–2005 season, his rookie season with the Aeros, he posted a 21–16–3 record with a 2.01 goals against average, second best in the league.
Harding was called up to the Wild on March 8, 2006, after goalie Dwayne Roloson was traded to the Edmonton Oilers leaving the team's tandem (the other being Manny Fernandez) one man short. Before being called up, he had a 27–8–0 record with a .923% save percentage (second best in the AHL) in the Aeros' 2005–2006 season. He finished the season with a 29–8–0 record for the Aeros.
