History

2009-10: Terrance Amorosa skated for the Lac St-Louis Royals Espoir midget AA team in suburban Montreal. He scored 1 goal with 5 assists in 23 games.

2010-11: Amorosa played for the West Island Royals midget AA team. He scored 5 goals with 15 assists and had 6 penalty minutes in 31 games.

2011-12: Amorosa attended the Holderness School in New Hampshire. He skated in 29 games as a sophomore and had 6 goals with 9 assists. Holderness reached the championship game of the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association Small School tournament, falling 3-2 in overtime to Kimball Union.

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. 

2014-15: Amorosa skated in 18 games for Clarkson University in his freshman season. He scored 1 goal with 4 assists and was +2 with 10 penalty minutes. Clarkson finished eighth in ECAC Hockey and was eliminated in the ECAC tournament first round, falling to RPI, 3-1, in the decisive third game of their best-of-three series.

2015-16: Amorosa was the second-leading scorer amongst defensemen for Clarkson despite missing 11 games in his sophomore season. Frequently paired with junior James De Haas (DET) late in the season, he scored 4 goals with 12 assists, one point behind De Haas for the team lead, and was a team-leading +9 with 14 penalty minutes in 27 games. Clarkson finished tied with RPI for fifth in ECAC Hockey, sweeping Princeton in a preliminary series before falling to neighboring rival St. Lawrence in the quarterfinals. All four of the Golden Knights’ ECAC playoff games went to overtime.

Talent Analysis

Amorosa is beginning to display signs of developing into the prospect the Flyers thought they were getting when the drafted him directly out of prep school. He has the prototypical size and skating ability to one day be an effective two-way defenseman at the NHL level and in his two years at Clarkson he has steadily adapted to the college game.

Future

Amorosa continued to make strides in his sophomore season at Clarkson University in 2015-16. A long-range prospect when he was selected by Philadelphia in the 2013 NHL Draft, the Quebec native was the team leader in plus/minus and is an offensive threat from the point. With several talented defensemen in the Flyers' pipeline he could face a numbers game in earning an entry-level deal following his college career. His progress to this point suggests he can be an effective skating defenseman with some offensive push to his game.
