Complete Player Care

The Orr Hockey Group's primary goal is to provide every one of our clients with a comprehensive plan of programs and services so that they may fully develop and reach their limitless potential…on and off the ice. Every Orr Hockey client will be provided with a full continuum of guidance that ensures peak performance.

Our roadmap to excellence starts with the proper assessment of a player’s strengths and weaknesses. From this starting point, we are able to help design and implement player specific “personal plans for success”, which includes focused skill development, strength and conditioning guidance and assistance with the establishment of individual nutrition plans.

Our personalized approach also includes assisting with a player’s emotional growth.  Specifically, we will use our years of professional experience to help our clients to better deal with the pressures that accompany high expectations. We understand that is vitally important to build consistency by providing our players with a complete "performance education"; a more professional approach to managing their personal game plans. Armed with all of these tools, we believe each player has the potential to develop the core fundamentals necessary to play successfully at the professional level.

With over 2000 professional games played, Orr Hockey Group partners offer a tremendous amount of practical knowledge and experience from “inside the glass”. We have ridden the buses, have suffered the crushing defeats, and have scored big goals to help our teams win critical games. Time and again, we have negotiated precedent setting contracts which have helped establish industry benchmarks for NHL player salaries. Our years of personal experience and our networking capabilities throughout the hockey world is second to none in the player representation business. We are the players’ agency.
