Career

Moskowy has represented Saskatchewan in two Canadian Junior Curling Championships: skipping the province in 2010 and 2011. At the 2010 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, he lost in the semi-final to Ontario's Jake Walker. At the 2011 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, Moskowy finished 12-0 in the round robin advancing to the final. In the final Moskowy beat Ontario's Mathew Camm to finish the week a perfect 13-0. Moskowy became the 5th team in Canadian Junior history to go undefeated. This qualified the Moskowy rink to represent Canada at the 2011 World Junior Curling Championships where the team went on to lose the semi-final as well as the bronze medal game, settling for fourth place.

Moskowy played in his first Grand Slam event at the 2011 Players' Championship, in which his rink became the first junior team to ever qualify at a Grand Slam event. In 2013, he qualified for his first Brier after winning the 2013 SaskTel Tankard 6-4 over Bruce Korte. At the Brier, Saskatchewan went 5-6 in the round robin, missing the playoffs. In 2014, Moskowy moved to Manitoba and joined the Reid Carruthers rink. With the Carruthers rink, Moskowy represented Manitoba at two Briers, in 2015 and in 2018. In 2015, the team went 4-7, missing the playoffs. In 2018, the team qualified for the Championship Pool with a 5-2 record before losing all four of their next games finishing the event with a 5-6 record. Moskowy also won his first Grand Slam with team Carruthers, the 2016 Champions Cup.

After the 2017–18 season, Moskowy left the Carruthers rink and moved back to Saskatchewan to join the Matt Dunstone rink. The team was invited to represent Canada at the third leg of the 2018-19 Curling World Cup. The team won the event, defeating Team Sweden's Niklas Edin rink in the final.

To start the 2019-20 season, Team Dunstone finished runner-up at the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard to John Epping. Team Dunstone also won their first career Grand Slam as a team at the 2019 Masters where they defeated Brad Gushue in the final.
