Jujhar Khaira @jujhar94 -
1. Jujhar is a big, two-way Indo Canadian power forward from Surrey, BC. He is the older brother of @skhaira12, who was featured yesterday. His dad was a truck driver and his mom was a speech pathologist. They signed Jujhar up for various sports as a youth, and he began playing hockey at 7.
2. Jujhar was not a highly touted prospect as a kid, and he didn’t play AAA level hockey until his Midget year.
3. When he was 16, he tried out for the @bchockeyleague @pgsprucekings and made the team. Over two seasons, he scored 121 points in 112 games. His junior success led to his being drafted 63rd overall by the @edmontonoilers in the 2012 @nhl Entry Draft.
4. After a season at @mtu_hockey and the @everett_silvertips, Jujhar made the jump to pro in 2014, and he played a little over a season with the @theahl Oklahoma City Oil Barons.
5. He made his NHL debut on November 28, 2015, against the @penguins, and he became the third player of Punjabi descent to ever play in the NHL. Since that time, Jujhar has been a solid, defensively responsible forward for the Oils, and his game continues to ascend in other areas of the ice.
