Wingels left the Sharks' 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday in the first period after taking a hit in the corner from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.
Wingels, who has two goals and four assists in 10 games this season, took part in the morning skate with no restrictions and said afterwards he was "feeling good." He met with doctors and the team's training staff later in the day before being cleared to play.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
