Moose Jaw Express.com - - 2018 Year In Review -

The Moose Jaw War­riors held their an­nual Conexus War­riors and Leg­ends Hall of Fame in­duc­tion for goal­tender Ja­son Fitzsim­mons (left), builder Toby To­bias and for­ward Rob Reimer en­shrined by team. Fitzsim­mons played for the War­riors from 1989 to 1992 and is fourth all-time in games played by a Tribe goal­tender and is fifth in fran­chise wins. He was drafted by the Van­cou­ver Canucks in the 1991 NHL En­try Draft and played eight years in the AHL and ECHL. He is cur­rently with the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals as a pro scout/mi­nor league op­er­a­tions.

Reimer was a mem­ber of the War­riors from 1987 to 1991 and played 250 games, rack­ing up 107 goals and 245 points. His best sea­son was 1990-91 where he had 45 goals and 99 points in 63 games. Reimer is tied for fifth in War­riors scor­ing and nine all-time in both goals and as­sists. His great­est mo­ment as a War­rior came when he scored the game win­ning goal in the fourth over­time of Game 2 against the Swift Cur­rent Bron­cos in the 1991 play­offs. Deeply de­vout through­out his hockey ca­reer, Reimer has been a pas­tor at the Regina Apos­tolic Church for the past 13 years.

Tobais was the pres­i­dent of the Moose Jaw board of di­rec­tors in 1991 and played a key role in the fi­nan­cial re­struc­tur­ing of the team af­ter dif­fi­cult times in the late 80s saw the city on the verge of los­ing their WHL fran- chise. Of­ten through brute force of will, To­bias cre­ated and de­vel­oped mea­sures that im­proved the team’s po­si­tion, paving the way to the War­riors now be­ing looked at as a mid-mar­ket fran­chise in the league and a sta­ble and pros­per­ous en­tity.
