2011-12: Cramarossa returned to Mississauga for his third season in the OHL after attending the Ducks' training camp and was obtained by the Belleville Bulls in a January 2012 trade with the Majors. Cramarossa skated in 15 games with the Majors prior to the trade – missing time due to injury and a 10-game suspension in November for a hit to the head. He scored 6 goals with 5 assists and was minus-two with 40 penalty minutes. In 29 games with the Bulls he scored 8 goals with 8 assists and was minus-10 with 43 penalty minutes. Belleville faced the Ottawa 67's in the first round of the playoffs after finishing second in the East Division. Cramarossa led the Bulls in points and penalty minutes in the six-game series – finishing plus-one with 2 goals, 2 assists and 18 penalty minutes.
2012-13: Cramarossa appeared in a career-high 68 games and was the leading scorer for Belleville in his fourth OHL season. Skating for the Buls as a 20-year-old, he scored 19 goals with a team-high 44 assists and was +19 with 89 penalty minutes. Belleville finished first in the East Division and reached the Eastern Conference finals against Barrie. Cramarossa scored 5 goals with 4 assists and was +8 with 35 penalty minutes in 17 playoff games. He signed a three-year entry-level contract with Anaheim in March, 2013.
Cramarossa was initially thought to be a somewhat rough and tumble third and fourth line player with limited offensive upside. That changed a bit when he absolutely destroyed in the OHL in his overage season and improved his point totals five times over from the previous year. He is still a rough and tumble player who plays with an edge and likes to throw the body around, but he has shown he has good on-ice vision as well as a knack for some solid puck-moving and playmaking.
No longer eligible for the junior level, Cramarossa is going to be tossed into the mix with the AHL Norfolk Admirals. He will have his work cut out for him with the wealth of tremendously talented centers in the Ducks system.
