Khaira out for Friday

by Chris Wescott / EdmontonOilers.com Head Writer

The Oilers will be without Jujhar Khaira Friday, when they host the Nashville Predators at Rogers Place.

Khaira left Wednesday's win against the Panthers with an upper-body injury.

Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan doesn't know the exact moment Khaira got injured because he hasn't consulted with the medical staff, but if he were guessing, he says it could have been when "he retrieved the puck, got jammed in the corner and came back to the bench hurt."

There is no further updated other than Khaira will miss Friday and see a doctor later today. McLellan said a forward would likely be called up from Bakersfield.
