Colton Orr News


Colton Douglas Orr (born March 3, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player, currently playing in the National Hockey League for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Orr was undrafted and signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins. On November 29, 2005, the New York Rangers claimed him off waivers from the Bruins. Orr scored his first NHL goal in a February 9, 2007, game against the Tampa Bay Lightning's Johan Holmqvist.

On December 31, 2006, Orr was suspended for five games by the NHL for a cross check to the face of Washington Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin in the third period of a December 30 game at Madison Square Garden. Ovechkin was uninjured, but NHL Senior Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell termed Orr's infraction "reckless".
