Khaira (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Monday's game against the Sabres. The 24-year-old missed the Oilers' skills competition Sunday but the unspecified injury wasn't serious enough for him to miss a contest. Khaira has just two goals and 13 points in 41 games in a bottom-six role this season and his fantasy value is virtually nonexistent in most formats.
Khaira will sit out of the Oilers' Skills Competition on Sunday due to an undisclosed injury. The Oilers announced that any players missing this activity were dealing with either an injury or illness, although nothing was specified. Expect an update ahead of Monday's game versus the Sabres. Khaira's absence shouldn't affect the fantasy realm since he's gone minus-6 without a point over the last eight games.
Khaira has served his two-game ban and is eligible to play versus the Sharks on Saturday. Khaira notched eight points in 10 outings prior to getting suspended. The center figures to anchor the third line alongside Milan Lucic and Ryan Spooner against San Jose.
Khaira has been suspended for two games for cross-checking St. Louis' Vince Dunn during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Blues. Vince Dunn only received a fine for the cross-check that he delivered which started the confrontation, so the fact that Khaira's check was retaliatory likely factored into the NHL Department of Player Safety's decision to issue him a suspension. The 24-year-old forward won't be eligible to return until Dec. 29 against the Sharks.
Khaira will be subjected to a league hearing Wednesday for cross-checking Vince Dunn of the Blues in Tuesday's game. Dunn has already been assessed a $1,942.20 fine for cross-checking Khaira, who retaliated and wound up with a 10-minute game misconduct penalty on top of his five-minute major for cross-checking. The player safety division is sure to consider the fact that Khaira's never been fined or suspended in the past.
