After spending a year at Michigan State University, Harding signed a 3 year contract with Flyers. Harding played in Philadelphia in 1988 and 1989 but suffered a broken patella bone and severed several tendons. Following his time in Philadelphia he played for the Canadian National Team competing in the Spengler and Izvestia Cup.
