Jujhar Khaira hopes he can be the big center the Edmonton Oilers are looking for.
At 6-foot-4 and around 214 pounds, Khaira certainly looks the part. "It's very exciting," he said. "It's nice to know they need a player like me and I'm going to try my best to fill that need — work my hardest to get a spot on the team." Of course, simply having the size isn't enough. Khaira needs some more seasoning and isn't expected to make the Oilers' opening game roster. Wed, Sep 17, 2014 08:02:00 AM

Two years and 20 pounds after they selected him in the third round of the 2012 draft, the Edmonton Oilers are licking their chops at the thought of what Jujhar Khaira can become in the NHL.

At 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds (so far), the left winger/center, who becomes a full-time professional this year, is everything they want. "He thinks the game really well on the ice and when you couple that with the size and skill he has, it’s going to be a very bright future for him," said Todd Nelson, coach of the Oilers' AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City. "He’s an intelligent guy. He knows what he has to do to get better and he works hard at it. With his size and maturity. . .I think the future is looking really positive for him." At 19, Khaira already is an imposing figure and will get a chance to prove his worth at the Oilers' next training camp. He had 43 points and 59 penalty minutes in 59 WHL games with Everett last season. He played for Prince George (BCHL) in 2012, Michigan Tech (WCHA) in 2013, Everett (WHL) in 2014 and is preparing for his first rookie season in Oklahoma City this year but also is hoping to make the Oilers at their next training camp.
