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.
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 in time, but he'll be continuing his development next season at Michigan Tech.
Khaira will play his freshman season at Michigan Tech University and could see time on the team's top two forward lines. He will have time at the NCAA level to develop his overall game and might turn out to be the big power forward the Oilers have been searching for their NHL line-up.
