Colton Orr: Puts an end to NHL career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orr has retired from the NHL, the Canadian Press reports.

Orr was the prototypical enforcer, racking up 1,186 PIM in just 477 career games between the Bruins, Rangers, and Leafs. Using a fourth-line forward exclusively as a fighter is a diminishing strategy for NHL teams these days, but Orr happened to play in an era where it was relished by fans and coaches alike.

The Maple Leafs recalled Orr on Thursday, the Toronto Star reports.The 33-year-old forward is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so Saturday's game against the Habs could end up being Orr's final tilt in a Toronto uniform. In 14 games the AHL's Toronto Marlies this season, Orr has recorded four penalty minutes. Over his 476-game NHL career, however, he has notched 24 points and racked up 1,186 PIM.

Orr has been placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment, reports the Toronto Star.It's a surprise, but it isn't. He can't skate well enough to keep up with today's game, but there have been rumors the Leafs were going to keep him with the NHL squad anyway.

Orr has played in just seven games since the Olympic break ended February 26. He has one shot and one minor penalty over that span in very limited ice time.The death knell appears to be ringing for Orr, whose effectiveness has been sorely limited this year -- opposing players simply refuse to drop their gloves with the pugilist. He can't skate well enough to keep up with today's game, so it remains to be seen what kind of future he has.

Orr (undisclosed) is not likely to play Monday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.Orr was on the ice for morning skate but apparently still needs further time to recover from his undisclosed ailment. With zero points in 45 games, Orr won't be missed in leagues where scoring categories are weighted heavily.

Orr (undisclosed) was not on the ice for morning skate and appears safe to rule out for Thursday's game against the Islanders, Mark Masters of TSN reports.The Leafs remain mum on the nature of Orr's injury, but it was apparently concerning enough for coach Randy Carlyle to consider other options for the first game out of the break. Orr remains day-to-day, but his status probably isn't worth monitoring unless you're counting on him for penalty minutes.

Orr (undisclosed) is day-to-day and may not suit up Thursday against the Islanders, reports Slam Sports.He had a procedure on his elbow in December, but this issue appears unrelated. He may have tweaked a suspected lower-body injury during Tuesday's workout. This will have little impact on most fantasy lineups -- there are more consistent PIMs to be gained with other meatheads.

Orr (illness) will not play Tuesday against the Bruins, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.Orr came down with the flu after morning skate and will not be available for the Leafs. Fortunately, it looks as though David Clarkson has recovered from his own bout with the flu that prevented him from skating during the morning. He'll presumably take Orr's spot in the lineup.

Orr (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.Orr's loss will deplete the Leafs' forward depth even further, with Joffrey Lupul (groin), Tyler Bozak (upper body) and Dave Bolland (ankle) all out of action. They'll likely add a winger prior to Thursday's game against the Stars.

Orr will miss Friday's game against the Devils with an undisclosed injury, TSN.ca reports.Orr has been his usual solid self for penalty minutes this season, with 51 in 15 games, so use someone else Friday if that's a category you normally rely on him for. The Leafs plan on dressing seven defensemen to account for his absence on the fourth line.

Orr (leg) skated before Saturday's practice and stayed on the ice for his first full workout of training camp once the rest of the team joined, TSN's Mark Masters reports.Orr was originally expected to miss about a week with a bruised leg bone, and this return puts him almost exactly on that timetable. The guess here is that he won't play in Saturday night's preseason game against Buffalo, but he should be fine to get in a couple of games of preseason work before the real games get underway.
