Alumni Update – Brett Orr

One of the top Terrier defencemen of the 2010’s Brett Orr came to Portage as a 17-year-old in the 2013-14 season. He put up 22 points as a rookie before stepping into a bigger role on the RBC Cup winning team in 2015.

Orr was one of five returning players for 2015-16 season and was named an assistant captain. He led the Terriers to another Turnbull Cup. Over three seasons with the club, Orr put up 83 points in 125 games. That season he also won gold on Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge along with teammate Dean Stewart.

“Portage was a huge part of my development as a hockey player. From the community including my billets, top notch coaching staff, and the great teammates I had over my three years it was a perfect place for me to play my junior hockey.”

For his final year of junior eligibility Orr decided to go to Bentley University (NCAA Div I), the same school as former teammate Tanner Jago. Over his four seasons he had 54 points in 139 games and was named captain in his final year.

Following his collegiate career he got a tryout with the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL, and is currently assessing his hockey options going forward.
