Rob O'Gara has his eyes set on making the Bruins out of training camp.

O'Gara spent the last four years at Yale University before playing five games with the Providence Bruins (AHL) at the end of last season. The 23-year-old will likely spend his first full pro season in AHL, but that doesn't mean he can't aim higher. "My mindset coming in is to try and earn a spot," said O’Gara. "I’m going to do whatever they say, try to work as hard as I can and try to earn that."

Rob O'Gara has signed a two-year, entry-level contract with Boston.

The deal will begin with the 2016-17 season, so he will join the AHL's Providence Bruins on an amateur tryout agreement for the remainder of the season. O'Gara produced 12 points in 30 games with Yale University this year. He was a fifth-round pick of the Bruins in 2011.

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.
