2009-10: Jujhar Khaira played for the Cloverdale Colts midget team in British Columbia. He went undrafted in the WHL Bantam Draft and was signed by Prince George of the BCHL.
2010-11: Khraira was the second-leading scorer for the Prince George Spruce Kings in his first season of junior hockey. In 58 games he had 10 goals with 32 assists and had 21 penalty minutes. Prince George missed the BCHL playoffs – finishing last in the Interior Division.
2011-12: Khaira had a breakout season in his second season with the Spruce Kings and played for Canada West in the U19 World Junior A Challenge. Playing on a line with BCHL leading scorer Paul DeJersey and Michael Colantone, Khaira scored 29 goals with 50 assists and had 69 penalty minutes. Prince George reached the playoffs after finishing third in the Interior Division. In the four-game series with Merritt, Khaira had 2 assists and 2 penalty minutes. Khaira was scoreless with 14 penalty minutes in five games for Canada West. Khaira committed to playing college hockey at Michigan Tech in 2012-13. He was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and ranked 74th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.
2012-13: Khaira was the third-leading scorer for Michigan Tech in his freshman season in what would be his only season of college hockey. Khaira scored 6 goals with 19 assists and was +2 with 49 penalty minutes in 37 games. The Huskies finished tenth in the WCHA but took third place North Dakota to a decisive third game in their first round playoff series. Khaira signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Oilers in August, 2013, foregoing his final three years of college hockey eligibility.
Whlie Prince George Spruce Kings linemate Paul De Jersey provided the skill, Khaira was the power forward on his line, where he used his size and work ethic to finish plays around the net. Khaira needs to work on his foot speed, which is mostly adequate at this stage of his development. Khaira has the drive and determination to make the pro game and showed that he could make a quick transition to a higher level in his freshman season at Michigan Tech. Khaira will have another challenge ahead as he transitions to the CHL, and eventually, the pro level.
Khaira signed an entry-level contract with the Oilers on August 7, 2013. He will either stick with the minor league affiliate in Oklahoma City or transition to the CHL, where his rights are owned by the WHL's Everett Silvertips.
