OSHAWA, Ont. - The Oshawa Generals have decided to reconnect with their past.

The Ontario Hockey League announced Friday that it will retire Bobby Orr's No. 2 this season. Orr's number will be raised to the rafters at General Motors Centre on Nov. 27 before the Generals host the Peterborough Petes.

The Hall of Fame defenceman joined the Generals as a 14-year-old in 1962 and later helped the team capture the OHL championship in 1966.

In four seasons with Oshawa, Orr compiled 278 points in 194 games.
