Jujhar Khaira appeared to have assisted on Taylor Hall’s goal against the Dallas Stars last Friday. However, Khaira’s first career NHL point was taken away and the goal was recorded as unassisted.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Khaira, in fact, had assisted on the goal and he could finally celebrate a career first.

“Guys kept bringing it up,” said Khaira. “I wasn’t really too worried about it. As long as I’m playing well and the team is playing well, that’s really number one right now. I wasn’t too worried.”

Even though he says it wasn’t on his mind, it’s a relief for Khaira to know five games into his NHL career he does in fact have a point.

“It’s nice. It is nice just to say I’ve got one,” said Khaira. “Now that that is over and done with I can move forward and just try to build off that.”
