Jujhar Khaira’s Season Likely Over

On Wednesday morning the Blackhawks announced forward Jujhar Khaira had back surgery on Tuesday. He’ll be out 10-12 weeks according to the team, which (checks calendar) puts his potential return around the middle to end of May.

So his 2021-22 season appears to be over.

He signed a two-year deal with the Blackhawks before this season with a $975,000 cap hit.

    Hopeche has a full recovery, back surgeries are never easy to come back from, even more so with the style of game he has to play.

    It’s a hard game to play and especially when you’re dealing with the Wirtz family ! I can remember one of my buddies that I played with in college saying that Dollar Bill referred to some of the players as clowns ! Some people don’t realize how physically Tough hockey players are ! Best, POPS 4

    He will hang on for another year to try to collect those checks before he retires. Just the kind of player the Hawks do not need at this point. And he is terrible at the one thing he is supposed to do, fight. Hopefully for his own health he retires sooner than later.

    Soderblom down and Lankinen activated. T. Johnson playing on top pp in practice, enough caproom to activate him now if they want to for weekend.

    Would have option next year if they wanted, to waive Khaira and if not claimed, bury his entire caphit in minors. Odd thing is his minors salary is actually $25,000 more than his nhl salary.

    It’s becoming harder and harder to care, and that’s kind of sad.

    But wait it’s getting warmer (actually not here yet), we have spring training and ball–oh yah they can’t get their act together. After it seems like 10 years of co-vid, probable war the multi-millionaires are fighting the billionaires.

    Timing, anyone. What a mess,

    I like this guy, Khaira! He always gave you everything he had on the ice, and he was smart and played his role well. The thing is, we didn’t need him on this team. We had and still have an abundance of 4th line guys. I hope he recovers well and gets with a team that need his contributions!

    Noonan96: My golf clubs will be used before the Hawks get a chance to use theirs. If it warms up soon and all this snow melts.

    Hopefully a speedy recovery for number 16. While I’m not a big fan, he’s a honest fourth line player.
