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.
You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
