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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 03:21:00 PM

Jujhar Khaira picked up an assist on the power play and a shorthanded helper with a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot and two hits in Tuesday's 8-2 win against the Golden Knights.

Khaira was scoreless in six games in the month of October, and his ice time was rather sporadic. He has picked up the pace with a goal and two assists through two November outings, and he is averaging about 14 minutes of ice time after just eight minutes per contest in October.

Jujhar Khaira scored his first goal of the season in Edmonton's 2-1 shootout loss to the Capitals on Sunday night.

Khaira, playing in his 32nd NHL game, scored the second goal of his career in what was mostly a sleepy affair in Washington. Khaira has been a healthy scratch for much of the year but was given a chance to play on the third line on Sunday. He has a goal in seven games this season.

It appears the Edmonton Oilers will scratch forward Jujhar Khaira vs. the New York Rangers.

It will be the sixth straight game in the press box for Khaira. He will be joined by Yohann Auvitu. Khaira has zero points in six games this season.
Sat, Nov 11, 2017 01:08:00 PM

Jujhar Khaira will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Khaira has played in just six games this season. This will be his fifth consecutive game as a healthy scratch. He has no points and a minus-2 rating in 2017-18. Yohann Auvitu will also be scratched, while Drake Caggiula is out with an injury.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 07:01:00 PM

Jujhar Khaira will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Jujhar Khaira will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

This will be his second time in the press box in the last three games. He has no points and a minus-1 rating in three games this season. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value in 2017-18. Teammate Matt Benning will miss the game because of an illness.
