TEAM BIO

Reid Carruthers returned to skipping his own squad in 2014 after four successful seasons playing front end on Jeff Stoughton’s team winning Brier and world titles in 2011.

Carruthers reunited with Derek Samagalski — having played together previously in 2005-06 and from 2008-10 — and added a pair of new members from two different provinces: Saskatchewan’s Braeden Moskowy and Alberta’s Colin Hodgson. Moskowy was an accomplished skip in the junior ranks and guided Saskatchewan to the Canadian junior title in 2011 while posting an undefeated 13-0 record in the tournament. Moskowy defeated Ontario’s Mat Camm 8-7 in the final after scoring the winning point in the extra end on a measurement.

The all-new Team Carruthers won the Manitoba provincial title in its first season together defeating Team McEwen in the Safeway Championship final to advance to the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier.

The 2015-16 campaign was a breakout season on the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling circuit for Team Carruthers finishing runner-up at two events — the National and the Elite 10 — and capturing its first GSOC title together at the inaugural Humpty’s Champions Cup. For Moskowy, Samagalski, and Hodgson it was their first championship win ever in the series while Carruthers’s earned his first as a skip after claiming the National in 2013 with Team Stoughton.

The Champions Cup title almost got away from them as Carruthers had a shot to win in the extra end, but hit and rolled out for a blank that resulted in a rare double extra end. The second time around Carruthers needed to make a trickier draw shot while facing three counters and his rock stopped just in time to defeat Team Epping.

Carruthers won the 2016 Canada Cup to book a spot to the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials. Craig Savill, a two-time world champion with Team Glenn Howard, joined the Carruthers crew late in the season as an alternate/adviser.

Carruthers paired with Joanne Courtney (Team Homan) to with the 2017 Canadian mixed doubles championship. Their silver medal performance at the worlds helped Canada clinch a berth to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Moskowy skipped Team Carruthers at the Champions Cup while their skip was away at the world mixed doubles championship.
