Former Miami captain Tommy Wingels scored his first NHL goal last night in his hometown of Chicago as the San Jose Sharks dropped a 4-3 decision to the Blackhawks. Wingels, who helped lead Miami to back-to-back Frozen Four appearances has 13 goals in 29 games for the Worcester Sharks this year. Last season, he netted 17 goals and 33 points for Worcester in 69 games, but in his 12th NHL game, he finally broke through off a rebound of a point blast by former Miami All-America defenseman Dan Boyle.
