Rob O'Gara is on the right path to eventually break into the NHL.
O'Gara has spent the last two seasons at Yale University after being selected by the Boston Bruins in the fifth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-4 blueliner had 11 points and 30 penalty minutes in 33 NCAA games last season. "If you've watched him play over the course of his two seasons at Yale," said Bruins assistant GM Don Sweeney, "and realize how much he plays and the situations he plays in — and part of the national championship team as a freshman — I think you quickly understand that he has a lot of good tools, a lot of things that we are very, very excited about as a National Hockey League defenseman."

Rob O'Gara has impressed the Boston Bruins.

"I like Robbie’s game," Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said. "He’s getting stronger. He’s getting stronger and more confident. I saw him play a few times last year and he’s improving. That run he had to the championship will help him. He sees the ice well, good range." O'Gara completed his first season with Yale in 2012-13. He was taken in the fifth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
