Marco Rosa (born January 15, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey center who currently plays for the Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He was born in Scarborough, Ontario.

Playing career[edit]

Rosa began his career by spending two seasons playing for the Wexford Raiders of the OPJHL. He then attended Merrimack College from 2000 to 2004. He was drafted in the 8th round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft (255th overall) by the Dallas Stars.[1]

Although his Junior season with Merrimack was cut short after his wrist was broken in a victory over Boston College in February 2003,[2] as a Senior he rebounded to lead the team with 15 goals scored.[3] Since graduating, he has played seven seasons in the ECHL and AHL. In the 2009–10 season, Rosa led the Manitoba Moose in scoring with 55 points.[4]

In 2010, he played with the Vancouver Canucks in the pre-season, but was reassigned to the Moose before the regular season began.[5][6]

On July 20, 2011, Rosa, along with three other former Manitoba Moose players, signed with the soon to be named St. John's IceCaps. The franchise, which moved from Manitoba, is an affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets.[7]

On June 21, 2013, after his first season abroad in Europe with the Espoo Blues of the Finnish SM-liiga, Rosa signed a one-year contract in Germany with Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg of the DEL.[8]
