Bio

Brooks Orpik Bio

The sight of Orpik barreling down on opposing forwards in the corner has been a constant since the 6-foot-2, 221-pound defenseman brought his punishing style of play to the NHL in 2003.

Born in San Francisco, Orpik goes by his middle name (his first name is Richard), which was given to him in honor of legendary coach Herb Brooks, who led the United States to an Olympic gold medal in men's ice hockey in 1980. His family moved to New York, where Orpik started playing hockey before landing at Thayer Academy in Braintree, Mass. The high school also produced 1980 United States Olympic team member Dave Silk and former NHL player Jeremy Roenick.
