A power forward with a powerful stride, Khaira is tough to separate from the puck. He has the ability to
find teammates and turn any play in to a scoring chance. Khaira plays with a mental and physical
maturity that is beyond his years.
Jujhar Khaira (pron: Juh-JAR CARE-ah) is a big powerful 6’ 3” forward that found success with the Prince
George Spruce Kings after being overlooked at the bantam draft. Khaira was the Spruce Kings second
leading scorer in his rookie season and followed that up with a breakout season with the Spruce Kings
and playing for Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge.
Playing on the top line with BCHL leading scorer, Paul De Jersey, Khaira finished the 2011-12 season with
29 goals, 50 assists and 69 minutes in penalties. He also helped Canada West win gold at the WJAC.
