With the Brier now over, curling teams across the country are making changes as they get ready for the next Olympic cycle.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Reid Carruthers rink from Winnipeg that represented Regina at the Brier announced third Braeden Moskowy was leaving the team. Moskowy joined Carruthers in 2014 and captured two Manitoba championships, one Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling title and a Canada Cup during the quadrennial. The 27-year-old from Regina skipped Saskatchewan to the Canadian junior championship in 2011.
Once the news was out, Moskowy revealed he had been battling injury all year long and that he had thrown his last rock of the year.
I played this season on a broken ankle which hasn’t been very much fun. The fellas are gonna play out the rest of the year & I’m gonna take this time to get the wheel fixed & rehabbed so I’m ready to roll for next season. Thanks to everyone for all the support over our 4 years.
