Wingels will be in the lineup for Thursday's Game 7 against the Predators, replacing Matt Nieto, who's dealing with an undisclosed injury, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. There hasn't been a shortage of Sharks smelling blood in the playoffs, but Wingels is an exception. He's bound to be inserted on a checking line in the bottom six, thus limiting his fantasy prospects. If you need a more reliable offensive weapon for your playoff pool, consider running with Wingels' teammate Logan Couture, who's already racked up six goals and eight assists in the postseason.
Wingels will be a healthy scratch Saturday, missing out on Game 5 against the Predators, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said he wanted to get a fresh body in the lineup since the Sharks endured a triple-overtime loss to the Predators on Thursday night. Still, as noted in the report, it's the only lineup change for Team Teal. Wingels is much more physical than the modern-day Zubrus, but neither warrant much fantasy attention these days as they're largely confined to the bottom six.
Wingels (shoulder) has been cleared to play, but won't draw into the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Boston, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Wingels may not be back in San Jose's lineup for awhile, as head coach Peter DeBoer likely doesn't want to disrupt his surging team's chemistry with a new addition, as the Sharks have won six of their last eight games. Either way, the 27-year-old winger isn't a viable option in the vast majority of fantasy leagues, as he's tallied just 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in 56 games this season.
Wingels (shoulder) could be available for Tuesday's matchup with the Bruins, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Wingels could be an option Tuesday but may not draw in even if healthy. The 27-year-old forward has potted just 15 points in 56 games this season, so his fantasy value has been limited, though he does lead San Jose with 165 hits. Wingels has not played in a game since Feb. 18.
Wingels (shoulder) remains out, but hopes to play some time next week, reports Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area. Wingels has been sidelined since getting injured in the first period of a Feb. 18 game against Florida. His 15 points in 56 games isn't meeting expectations placed on him to start the season, but a big part of rostering him is his team-leading 165 hits. If returning from a shoulder injury impacts the number of hits he's throwing, it will impact his value in a big way.
