Jujhar Khaira saw some first line time on Friday.

It was only his fourth NHL game for the power forward who was promoted to the top unit alongside Taylor Hall and Leon Draisaitl. Khaira has not been a scorer at the AHL level with only 17 points in 73 games but has played well at the NHL level thus far in limited time. "I hope that he pushes so hard that we don’t consider sending him back, but we have some time to make those decisions because of injuries," coach Todd McLellan said. We shall see. Don't take him in your pool but keep an eye on him in the future.
