Jujhar Khaira has reached the 20-point milestone.
It took Khaira 57 games to reach that point. It's been a decent offensive output given that this is his first full campaign and he's averaging a modest 12:41 minutes per contest. Mar 15 - 8:54 AM

Jujhar Khaira notched a shorthanded goal with a plus-1 rating in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against the Coyotes.

Khaira finished with three shots on goal and a hit over his 23:06 of ice time, although he did win just three of his eight faceoff attempts. He has picked up the pace lately, notching three goals over the past eight games to give him 11 on the season, but he is still nothing more than a fantasy option for deeper pools.
Mar 6 - 12:36 AM

Jujhar Khaira scored his 10th of the season Saturday.

Khaira has played in 48 games this season but was quite hot earlier in the campaign as this was only his third goal in over eight weeks. He has little fantasy value.
Feb 25 - 7:22 AM

Jujhar Khaira netted his ninth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss against the Bruins.

Khaira gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead, and they carried that into the third period before the Bruins found their offense and skated away with a 3-2 comeback road win. It was Khaira's first goal since Jan. 20, and just his second since Dec. 27. He remains useful only in the very deepest of fantasy pools until further notice.
Feb 21 - 1:32 AM

Jujhar Khaira recorded an assist in a 7-5 loss to Florida on Monday.

That ended Khaira's seven-game point drought. He's up to eight goals and 16 points in 42 contests this season.
Feb 13 - 6:10 AM

Jujhar Khaira is getting second line minutes with the Oilers of late.

Khaira has been playing at center with Jesse Puljujarvi (and it could be the first time that two players on the same line have had 'juj' in each of their names) and Milan Lucic in the last two games as the Oilers are desperately looking for some magic. "We’re going to give him a chance to play there," coach Todd McLellan said. "He has the past experience. He’s a big man and it’s always nice to have that size through the middle. And he’s normally fairly strong on the face-off circle. His defensive game has to improve but whose doesn’t? We’re going to give him a shot there and see what he can accomplish." Khaira has been a pleasant surprise this season with eight goals and 15 points in 37 games. Stay tuned.
Feb 4 - 8:07 AM

Jujhar Khaira scored a goal in the Oilers' 4-3 loss to Winnipeg on Wednesday.

Khaira has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. The 23-year-old has scored seven goals and 13 points in 24 contests despite averaging around 12:30 minutes per game.

Jujhar Khaira scored his sixth of the season Saturday in the Oilers win over Montreal.

That gives Khaira three goals in two games against Montreal. The bad news for the Oilers winger who also had an assist in the first period on Ryan Strome's seventh of the season, is that the Oilers and Montreal do not play each other again this season. Khaira has been a nice surprise for Edmonton with 12 points this season.

Jujhar Khaira scored two goals as the Edmonton Oilers routed the Montreal Canadiens 6-2 on Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

Khaira scored once in the first and added another in the second, contributing to Carey Price's removal from the game. He now has five goals and nine assists in 16 games so far this season. He is on a bit of a hot streak, with five points in his last four games.

Jujhar Khaira (lower body) returned to action on Thursday November 30.

Khaira was sidelined for three straight games. He made up for lost time by registering two assists in Edmonton's 6-4 loss to Toronto.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 01:41:00 AM

Jujhar Khaira didn't practice Saturday because of a lower-body injury.

Khaira has four points in his last six games for the Oilers. At this point it is looking unlikely to see the 23-year-old forward in the lineup on Sunday against the Bruins.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 12:37:00 PM

Jujhar Khaira has drawn into the Oilers' lineup in five of their last six games.

Khaira has spent plenty of time serving as a healthy scratch, but he seems to gradually be earning Oilers coach Todd McLellan's trust. It helps that Khaira has been chipping in offensively with two goals and four points in his last five games. Khaira isn't expected to have much fantasy value this season, but he could work his way into a regular bottom-six role with the Oilers.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 06:35:00 AM

Jujhar Khaira and Ryan Strome are the only two Oiler bottom six forwards to have scored five-on-five this season.

Each has scored only once so it's not like they are lighting it up after 20 games for the Oilers. It is a big reason why Edmonton is close to the bottom of the standings despite having Connor McDavid on the roster.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 06:26:00 AM

Jujhar Khaira (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

Khaira missed Thursday's game after suffering an upper body injury Tuesday. He has three points in nine games and like most Oilers thus far this season, has little if any fantasy value.
Sat, Nov 18, 2017 11:04:00 PM

Jujhar Khaira sustained an upper-body injury during Tuesday's game.

Khaira will miss Thursday's contest as a result. He has a goal and three points in eight games this season.
