In 378 career AHL games with Manitoba, Abbotsford, Cleveland, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Norfolk, Jaffray has recorded 131 goals and 175 assists for 306 points. In 75 career AHL playoff games, he has tallied 27 goals and 29 assists for 56 points.

Jaffray was a Second Team AHL All-Star in 2006-07, and he helped the Moose reach the Calder Cup Finals in 2009. He participated in the AHL All-Star Classic in 2007 and 2010.
