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.
Although his Junior season with Merrimack was cut short after his wrist was broken in a victory over Boston College in February 2003, as a Senior he rebounded to lead the team with 15 goals scored. 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.
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.
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 in Germany. He eventually stayed until 2016 and reached the DEL finals with Wolfsburg in the 2015–16 season, where they fell short to München. In June 2016, fellow DEL team Krefeld Pinguine announced to have signed Rosa for the 2016–17 campaign.
