BLOG: Khaira out against Blues with upper-body injury

Forward sustained injury in Tuesday's game against the Vegas Golden Knights

by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - After piecing together two consecutive quality outings, Jujhar Khaira will not be in the Oilers lineup Thursday versus the St. Louis Blues.

"Jujhar will not play today but it has nothing to do with his play," said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan. "If he was healthy, he would play. He would play a lot of minutes. He's earned that right but he has an upper-body injury that occurred in that last game."

Khaira is on a two-game point streak, scoring Sunday against the Washington Capitals then nabbing a pair of helpers Tuesday when the Vegas Golden Knights visited Rogers Place.

The Oilers acquired Michael Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, sending Jussi Jokinen the other way. The new acquisition will take Khaira's spot on the third line, which McLellan believed was starting to gain chemistry.

"That line, if we leave Cammalleri out of it, was starting to gel a little bit," said the Oilers coach. "More of their offensive zone stuff came off the cycle and the forecheck. It wasn't as pretty as maybe they'd like to play but it was effective. 

"I thought J.J. had a big part in that."

The forward will join the team on the upcoming five-game road trip.

"It's not major but it's going to keep him out of the game tonight and we'll see how he is on the road trip," said McLellan.
