Khaira registered an assist, four hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets. Khaira ended a nine-game point drought with the primary helper on Alex Chiasson's first-period marker. The 25-year-old forward is up to 10 points with a career-high 129 hits and 68 shots on net in 62 contests.
Khaira has no points in his last seven games. During that span, Khaira has 11 hits, seven shots on net and a minus-4 rating. The physical winger has just nine points to go with 121 hits and 65 shots in 59 contests this season. He's been dropped to the fourth line and could be in danger of serving as a healthy scratch once James Neal (ankle) returns.
Khaira posted an assist, three hits and two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes. Injuries have depleted the Oilers' top lines, so Khaira got a turn in the top six Sunday. He assisted on a Leon Draisaitl tally in the first period. For the season, Khaira is up to nine points, 110 hits and 32 PIM through 52 contests. His helper Sunday snapped a 13-game dry spell.
Khaira has racked up nine hits and seven PIM over his last four appearances. Unfortunately, Khaira also has a minus-4 rating in that span and no points. The 25-year-old is at eight points, 95 hits and 23 PIM in 46 contests this season. He skated in his 200th career game Tuesday, a 3-0 loss to the Coyotes. With 50 points in his career, he tracks as a 20-point player -- that's bottom-six production, which matches his typical usage.
Khaira has been a healthy scratch for the last three games. Khaira opened the 2020 calendar year with four straight pointless outings before coach Dave Tippett sent him to the press box. Khaira has only eight points and a minus-15 rating to go with 86 hits in 42 games this season. He'll try to get back into the lineup after the bye week.
