Monterey Park native, California youth hockey alum Terramani commits to NCAA D-III Lawrence


Dante Terramani, a forward for the EHL’s New Jersey 87’s, has committed to NCAA Division III Lawrence University for the fall of 2021.

The 2000-born native of Monterey Park is playing in his second season with the 87’s, and in 83 career games in the EHL, last year’s Rookie of the Year has tallied 113 total points (53 goals, 60 assists).

Terramani was named last season’s top rookie following a campaign that saw him post 55 points in 44 games. The play-making and scoring ability only improved this season, as the EHL All-Star has added 58 points in 39 total games so far this year.

Of his 113 career points, 10 have been game-winning goals.

Terramani is beyond excited to have landed a spot with the Lawrence hockey program, and even more grateful to have done so with one of his current teammates, Colorado native Tim Debord.

“It’s going to be great to live with Tim,” Terramani said. “He was a veteran in my first year of juniors, so I know him really well. As far as the school, I just believe it’s a great location I know the academics are impressive and I look forward to improving the hockey program there.”

Terramani went on to talk about the experience he’s gained while playing for the 87’s.

“I remember my first year I had a really good season and I just tried to stick with it with my training over the summer and get back the next season to do the same thing,” added Terramani. “Adam (Houli) and Matty (Kiernan), they just run the program very professionally. They give us every chance to succeed, and they help us every chance they get. A lot of it for me was born through my commitment over the summer.”

During his youth hockey career in California, Terramani skated for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings, Jr. Reign/Wildcats and St. John Bosco High School.
