Observations:

 

September 2013 – After a season of playing for Michigan Tech (NCAA) where Jujhar Khair netted six goals and 25 points in 37 games, the Oilers 2012 3rd round pick has earned a three-year entry level contract with Edmonton after several strong showings during summer camps. Most recently, Khair is attempting to make the Oklahoma City Barons roster after being sent to the AHL affiliate club’s training camp. His big frame, strong board work and evident skill level has caught the eye of the Oilers brass and if he fails to turn professional for the 2013-14 season, look for Khair to make his debut with the Everett Silvertips of the WHL. Brendan Ross

 

February 2012  – Jujhar Khaira is one of the few highly-touted power forwards slated for an early selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. His unique blend of size, strength and scoring ability make him an intriguing prospect. However, it is difficult to place a lot of significance on his offensive production playing in the BCHL. Playing at a higher level of competition in the NCAA in 2012-13, it will be easier to project just how talented Khaira is. John Canario

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Khair projects as a big hard-working winger with strong board skills and likely will debut as a bottom-six forward.
