Congratulations Daniela!

Team Illinois is proud to announce that 19U Daniela Trimper has committed to play NCAA Division III Hockey for SUNY Buffalo State College and compete in the ECAC West Women’s Hockey League. 

The Bengals are coached by Rachel Grampp.

Daniela was attracted to Buffalo State for many reasons.  “First and foremost all of my family are from Buffalo which was a huge plus.  Buffalo, NY is a big city with a small town feel.  The tree lined campus is within walking distance to dining, shopping, museums and parks.”  She stated.  “Add in the opportunity to be a Bengal and continue my hockey career and I was sold.”

She added, “I’d like to thank my parents, my teammates and all of the coaches I’ve had over the years.  I also give a special mention to Carla Pentimone for her guidance and opportunities over the years.”

Daniela plans on studying Psychology. 

She is the second Bengal from Team Illinois and joins now graduated Hailey Tylka. 


It’s been fantastic getting to know Daniela this year at Team Illinois.  We wish her the very best in her hockey and academic future.
