Yes you do get some sodium from this recipe but it's not like you wind up drinking it... the flavor soaks into the wings but the bulk of the marinade is being discarded... It's not like fried rice where the soy sauce is soaked into the rice and consumed.

Even with low sodium soy sauce, you get 23% (575 mg) of sodium in ONE TABLESPOON. Yikes!
We make a fantastic teryaki marinade for wings... 1 bottle soy sauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, couple teaspoons of black pepper, a big squirt of mustard or a teaspoon or so of mustard powder, a tablespoon of garlic powder... Mix it all up so everything is incorporated. Pour over the wings (or legs work well in this too) and let it marinade for at least several hours if not over night. Bake in the marinade until cooked through. They wind up so tender and yummy!!!

A few ideas:
Spicy Orange Wings - 1/3 C orange juice, 2 T vinegar, 1 T brown sugar, 2 t soy sauce, 1 t chili sauce, 1 t dried ginger. Mix ingredients and bring to a quick boil, simmer until sauce coats the back of a spoon. Coat chicken and bake...reserving half sauce. Half way through cooking time, baste with 1/2 remaining sauce. Serve hot with reserved sauce on the side for dipping.
Golden Mustard Wings - 1/3 C mustard, 2 T chili sauce, 2 T honey, 2 T apple juice, 1 T butter, salt & pepper to taste. Mix ingredients and bring to a quick boil, simmer until sauce coats the back of a spoon. Coat chicken and bake...reserving half sauce. Half way through cooking time, baste with 1/2 remaining sauce. Serve hot with reserved sauce on the side for dipping.
Parmesan Pepper Wings - Soak wings in buttermilk for at least 30 minutes. Set to drain. In the meantime mix 1/4 C parmesan, 1 1/2 T fresh cracked black pepper, 1 t garlic salt, 1 T your favorite dried herb Do not wipe chicken; press chicken on ONE SIDE into parmesan mix. Roast until done with parmesan side up..
