Before Dartmouth: A two-year player for the Sioux Falls Stampede (USHL), Warpecha played in over 100 regular season games and 18 playoff contests. His time in the USHL was highlighted by winning the Clark Cup during the 2014-15 season. This year, despite being asked to play more of a defensive role, the six-foot forward more than doubled his point totals from the year before. An Illinois native, Warpecha played for the Chicago Mission AAA program of the High Performance Hockey League. In his second year on the Mission U16 team, his group won a Central District title, earning a bid to the Tier 1 USA Hockey Nationals, where they won a U16 National Championship. In 2013-14, he again showed offensive improvement by more than tripling his point totals from the previous season. Daniel was also selected to participate in two USA Hockey Festivals.
