2012-13: Amorosa skated in 29 games as a junior in his second season at Holderness. He scored 12 goals with 14 assists. Holderness reached the semifinals of the NEPSIHA Small School tournament, falling to top seed Kents Hill, 4-1. Amorosa, not among the 210 North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings, was selected by Philadelphia in the fifth round (132nd overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

2013-14: Amorosa skated for Sioux City in the USHL. In 50 regular season games he scored 2 goals with 12 assists and was plus-26 with 10 penalty minutes. The Musketeers finished third in the Western Conference and reached the Clark Cup playoff semifinals. Amorosa was plus-1 with no points and 2 penalty minutes in six playoff games. After originally committing to the University of New Hampshire and then switching to Providence College in the summer of 2013, he announced in July 2014 that he was going to play college hockey at Clarkson in 2014-15. 

Talent Analysis

Amorosa is still fairly early in the process in terms of development, but he earned some playing time as a freshman at Clarkson. He has the prototypical size and skating ability to one day be an effective two-way defenseman at the NHL level.

Future

Amorosa joins Clarkson for his second NCAA season. As a freshman, Amorosa appeared in 18 games and earned the team’s Richmond Award for showing team leadership and improvement in his play.
