DiMasi is one of the best defensemen to wear the Maroon and Gold sweater in the century-plus history of Norwich men’s hockey. He was a two-time American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) First Team All-American as a junior and senior, while also serving as an assistant captain in both of those seasons.

He played an integral role on the 2002-03 team that was inducted into the Norwich Athletic Hall of Fame last year after winning the program’s second national championship. DiMasi scored 21 goals and dished out 59 assists for 80 points in 115 career games played. Norwich went 96-21-1 overall, with a 2.18 goals-against average  and 60-12-1 in league play during DiMasi's career, winning three Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) East Tournaments and making three NCAA Tournament appearances.

“We had a very successful program with a lot of great support from the administration and the fans at Kreitzberg,” DiMasi said. “We were very lucky in my four years to have the success we had had, especially being able to win it all at Kreitzberg – it was something all of us cherished.”

 

DiMasi joins his father, Lou DiMasi II ‘76, who was also a hockey player at Norwich and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986.

After playing professional hockey for a few seasons after graduating from Norwich, DiMasi returned home to Vermont to take over as the Saint Michael’s men’s golf coach. This year marks his seventh year at the helm of the program. He also owns and operates an event management company and helps coach hockey at Burlington High School. 

Lou and his wife Cara live in Burlington with their 11-month old son, Lou DiMasi IV.
