Saying he wants to be the team that ends the lengthy drought Saskatchewan has had at the Canadian men’s curling championship, Regina’s Braeden Moskowy is coming home.
Moskowy, who had been the third on the Reid Carruthers rink out of Winnipeg, separated from the team shortly after this year Tim Hortons Brier, announced the formation of his new team on 620 CKRM’s Sportscage Tuesday afternoon.
Throwing fourth stones for the team will be Matt Dunstone. He had the same role for the Steve Laycock team that represented Saskatchewan at the Brier. The 22-year-old is a two-time Canadian junior champ. Moskowy will throw third stones with Regina’s Catlin Schneider and Dustin Kidby serving as second and lead.
“It’s been 38 years since Saskatchewan has won the Brier.” Moskowy said. “We want nothing more than to be the guys who do that.”
Besides trying to capture a Brier for Saskatchewan, the team also has sights on the 2022 Olympics as do many teams who have shuffled their teams around since the Brier ended to get ready for a four-year cycle.
