Orr became an agent representing hockey players in 1996. Along with investors, Orr purchased the Woolf Associates agency founded by Boston lawyer Bob Woolf.
To prevent conflicts of interest, Orr sold an investment in the Lowell Lock Monsters minor pro hockey team and cut his ties with a credit card firm that had a contract with the NHLPA.
Orr became a certified agent, although he would not be negotiating with hockey clubs. Player agent Rick Curran merged his agency with Orr's in 2000.
The Orr Hockey Group was formed when Orr bought his business back from Woolf Associates. Rick Curran and Orr along with partner Paul Krepelka incorporated the agency as Orr Hockey Group in February 2002.
Orr is the majority owner of the agency, and Krepelka and agent Rick Curran are equity partners.
The Orr Hockey Group has six full-time employees and five consultants. The company has a presence and recruits hockey players in the United States, Canada, the Czech Republic, Russia and Germany.
