Recommended by KEN TEXMO

Robert Gordon “Bobby” Orr is one of the greatest hockey players of all time. Orr used his ice skating speed, scoring, and play-making abilities to revolutionize the position of defenseman.



Bobby Orr was born in Parry Sound in 1948. He began skating at the age of four when he acquired his first pair of skates from a family friend. The Seguin River became Bobby’s rink of choice.

While Bobby was in kindergarten, he began playing in the Parry Sound Minor Squirt Hockey League.

By the age of 9, he had won the MVP in the Pee-Wee Division.


“My childhood house in Parry Sound, Ontario, was so cold in the winter you had to flick bits of ice off the light switches in the morning before turning them on.”

Read Bobby Orr’s childhood memories.

See the small house of legendary Canadian just five minutes drive from the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame, at 24 Great North Rd, Parry Sound, ON P2A 2N7


Visit Booby Orr Hall of Fame to learn more about Bobby Orr. He visits Parry Sound regularly, for at least once a year to induct new hockey players to the Hall of Fame. The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Induction has become one of the community’s most treasured events.
