O'Gara actually played lacrosse a year ago- before the Bruins drafted him. This would have been his second season of LAX.

Good to see he's putting on weight. He was the best defenseman in prep this past season despite playing on a young, inexperienced team. Logged about 35 minutes a night.

Bruins benefited from him having played just 1 year of prep hockey before being drafted. Most NHL teams get 2 years to look at guys at that level, so I think some clubs were asleep at the switch. Getting him with the last pick of the fifth round was fine value.
