Simek (knee) was removed from injured reserve Friday.
Simek should slot back into the lineup versus the Kings on Friday, though Mario Ferraro (upper body) and Tim Head will also both be hoping to secure a spot on the Sharks' third pairing. Prior to getting hurt, the 27-year-old Simek notched four points in 16 outings.
Simek (knee) is expected to participate in full practices soon and should be ready by late December, Sharks beat writer Sheng Peng reports.
Simek has sat out since Dec. 7, as he's tended to a meniscus injury, and the Sharks hope to have him back after the holiday break. The 27-year-old blueliner has notched four points and a minus-12 rating over 16 games this year. Once he's healthy, there's a chance he's sent down to AHL San Jose; otherwise, he'll bump either Mario Ferraro or Brenden Dillon from the lineup.

Simek recorded an assist, five hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.
Simek has been better than expected with four points, 22 hits and 15 blocked shots in seven games. The 27-year-old is partnered with Brent Burns, which has probably helped him produce more offense than he would if he was on the third pairing.

Simek collected an assist but went minus-3 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Red Wings.
