2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018-19 season saw Khaira appear in 60 contests, a year after playing 69 games as a rookie. In his sophomore season, Khaira scored three goals and finished with 18 points while averaging 12:34 per night. The 6-foot-4 winger certainly brings size to Edmonton's forward group, having racked up 251 hits combined over the past two seasons. But offensively, Khaira offers very little, and because of that, he won't be of much use in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

Physical but lacking offense

October 14, 2019
Khaira has 11 hits and four PIM but no points through six games.
ANALYSIS
Khaira's been more of a gritty forward throughout his career. He had three goals, 18 points and 123 hits in 60 games last year. However, he won't be worth a look in even deep formats until he can chip in a bit on the scoresheet.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2014
In his first season playing exclusively with the Oilers, Khaira went through his fair share of growing pains. He surpassed the 20-point milestone (11 goals, 10 assists) in 69 games, but closed out the 2017-18 season by scoring a single point in the final 12 contests. The young center delivered 128 hits but only collected 39 blocks. While it was encouraging to see Khaira set a career high for ice time (12:42), he'll need more experience to be trusted in 2018-19.
The big winger has yet to elbow out a consistent NHL role with the Oilers. Over the last two seasons, the 23-year-old has played 25 games while accumulating just one goal and two assists. This could be a breakthrough year for him, but his upside is a bottom six role.
Khaira had is first taste of professional hockey last season by playing six regular-season and three playoff games for AHL Oklahoma City after playing out his season in the WHL. He drained his first pro goal in the postseason and looks to add to that tally in Oklahoma City this year. He's a distance from the NHL, so don't bother monitoring him yet.
