  • Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Doles out punishment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/18) Khaira delivered five hits in Monday's 6-2 victory over the Lightning.

    On a night where Edmonton was collecting points every period, Khaira trended in the other direction, registering five hits -- the most for the giant center since Jan. 12. Khaira now has 62 hits in 38 games in 2017-18. However, with only one point in his last six games, the British Columbia native only has value in deep leagues and those that accumulate hits.

    Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Playing on second line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/18) Khaira has received more opportunities with the second line, the Edmonton Sun reports.

    As the Oilers continue to shuffle their lines, Khaira is the next to receive a better opportunity. He has been seeing more shifts alongside Jesse Puljujarvi and Milan Lucic as of late. "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." The young center has slowly but surely contributed this season with 15 points in 37 games. While Khaira cannot yet be trusted outside of deep leagues, it is a situation worth monitoring.

    Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Scores eighth goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/18) Khaira scored a goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

    The goal was Khaira's first since Dec. 27, giving him 15 points in 34 games in 2017-18. As the Oilers continue to shuffle their lines, opportunities could arise for the young winger, but he's probably best left for the waiver wire for now.

    Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Two-point game comes in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/17) Khaira scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

    The Surrey, B.C. native is a sporadic scorer, but that may change if his chemistry with Leon Draisaitl continues. While Khaira remains just a fringe asset in most leagues for now, his fantasy stock is on the rise.

    Oilers' Jujhar Khaira: Dishes out helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Khaira collected an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Physically, Khaira also filled the scoresheet with three hits and three blocks, and the point was Khaira's first in his last four games. He started December on fire with three goals in the first week but has since come back to earth offensively. With five goals, five assists, 33 hits and 12 blocks, the young winger probably isn't worth fantasy consideration in the majority of formats.
