April 2020 – The Pittsburgh Penguins signed O’Connor to a two-year entry-level contract. O’Connor was one of the top undrafted college free agents this year. He had a solid year with Dartmouth, scoring 21 goals and adding 12 assists for 33 points in 31 games. He led Dartmouth in goals scored as well as in points, while also leading the ECAC in goals.
