Now accepting applications for roles in Sports Media, Sports Marketing, Event Management and Journalism.

Owen Orpana is a highly mobile defenseman. Orpana has been a catalyst in supporting forwards with plays through the neutral zone and in the attack as his team enters the zone. He is not afraid to use his strong skating skills to join the rush and jump out at appropriate times to defend and create offense. Owen has been an anchor for the group and makes great plays, smooth transitions, and clean exits. He has a high compete level and is not afraid to go deep in corners and block shots. He is working to improve his gap control so he can better dictate plays. Provided the impact Orpana has made on his team, as he continues to grow he will likely be able to continue his influence in the OHL.
