The Moose Jaw Warriors are excited to announce that Brian Sutherby and Shawn Limpright are the 2018 inductees to the Warriors and Legends Hall of Fame.

Sutherby was selected by the Warriors in the sixth round, 94th overall, at the 1997 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft and went on to play 208 games with the Warriors from 1998 to 2002. Sutherby finished his WHL career with 178 points (79G-99A), and 362 penalty minutes. His best season with the Warriors was 2000-2001 where he had 77 points (34G-43A) in 59 games.

He would go on to play 12 years professionally, which included 460 games in the NHL with Washington, the Anaheim Ducks, and Dallas Stars, finishing with 90 points (41G-49A) and 533 penalty minutes.

Unfortunately, due to injuries, he retired from hockey at the age of 31. He would go on to work briefly in the media and youth hockey programs in his hometown of Edmonton, Alta. He currently resides in Anaheim, Calif. with his wife Ashley and two boys Keaton and Brody. He is currently in his fifth season as the Western Pro Scout with the Washington Capitals and was part of their staff that won the 2018 Stanley Cup.

After leaving Moose Jaw, Limpright went on to play professional hockey for the next 12 years in the ECHL (Roanoke, Dayton, and Las Vegas), the American Hockey League (Syracuse), and two years overseas in the United Kingdom (2012-13) and Denmark (2013-14).

Limpright retired from hockey four years ago and moved back home to St. Adolphe, Man. with wife Jessica and son Peyton and daughter Ella, and is now a police officer in Winnipeg.

Sutherby and Limpright will be inducted to the Warriors and Legends Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Mosaic Place on Friday, February 15th.  They will be honoured again before the Hall of Fame Game against the Regina Pats at Mosaic Place on Saturday, February 16th (7:00 p.m. CT).
