ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding is out for the rest of the season.

The team said Tuesday that Harding has a torn labrum in his hip and will likely need surgery. The Wild have six games remaining and are a longshot to make the playoffs.

Harding aggravated his injury in Friday's game at Detroit and was removed after two periods. Niklas Backstrom is the starter, but Harding has played more this season because Backstrom has also been hurt.

Defenceman Clayton Stoner (abdominal surgery) and centre Andrew Ebbett (broken finger) also won't play again this season. Ebbett was hurt when he blocked a shot in Monday's game against Los Angeles.
