Simmonds has missed the past two games since sustaining a concussion when he was elbowed in the face by Washington Capitals defenseman John Erskine during a game Feb. 1. Erskine was suspended three games for the hit.
"I feel pretty good," Simmonds said after Wednesday's skate. "I feel good today especially."
Simmonds added that he has been "headache-free" since the hit, but that the decision on when he would return to the lineup rested with the team's medical staff.
