Bio

Brooks Orpik Bio

Orpik has made life miserable for opposing forwards since the 6-foot-3, 217-pound defenseman brought his punishing style of play to the NHL in 2003. He's played on Stanley Cup-winning teams with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009 and the Washington Capitals in 2018, when he was an NHL-best plus-17 in 24 games.

Orpik was born in San Francisco and goes by his middle name (his first name is Richard), given to him in honor of famed coach Herb Brooks, who led the United States to the gold medal at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. Orpik's family moved to New York, where he began playing hockey before landing at Thayer Academy in Braintree, Massachusetts, which has produced 1980 United States Olympic team member Dave Silk and former NHL player Jeremy Roenick.
