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.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
