Edmonton Oilers forward Jujhar Khaira was on the receiving end of a violent punch on Monday night that ended his night early.
Khaira delivered a check to the head of Calgary Flames player Oliver Kylington.
After the hit, Khaira was a marked man and hunted down on the ice by Calgary forward Brett Ritchie and the two men began throwing hands.
Khaira took a right hand directly on the jaw before being knocked unconscious and taken to the locker room for evaluation.
You can watch the blow to the head here.

The good news is Edmonton coach Dave Tippett said Khaira was “day-to-day” with symptoms from the hit but that he is “feeling all right,” according to TMZ Sports.
