The Arizona Sundogs announced today signed Manitoba native Shawn Limpright, a CHL veteran who won a Ray Miron President's Cup with the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs and is a former league teammate of current Sundogs David Rutherford and Michael Couch.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound forward joins the Sundogs after returning from overseas where he played his last two seasons. Most recently Limpright played for Esbjerg in Denmark where he posted six goals and 13 assists for 19 points in 26 games. During his 2012-13 season he tallied 21 goals and 37 assists for 58 points, averaging a point a game playing for the Sheffield Steelers of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL).

The 12-year veteran began his professional career in the ECHL where he played in 360 games and collected 85 goals and 168 assists for 253 points. He played 241 of those games for the Las Vegas Wranglers, posting his career high plus/minus rating of 23 in 2006-07. Limpright also spent time in the American Hockey League (AHL) playing for the Syracuse Crunch for 45 games and tallied 18 points.

In 2009 he joined the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs where he put up 53 points in 60 games and returned the next season where he skated with David Rutherford and Michael Couch, earning the 2011 Ray Miron President's Cup. In 2011-12, while playing for the CHL's Rapid City Rush, he saw his best season when he collected 28 goals and 53 assists for 81 points in 65 games and recorded a plus/minus rating of 22.

"Shawn is a winner and has a ton of variables to him both on and off the ice and adds to our leadership group", Sundogs head coach Kevin Colley said in a team statement. "We couldn't be more excited to have him join us at a time of so many injuries and to make a run in the post-season. Shawn, we believe can put us over the edge with his hockey knowledge and his desire to win."

In other Sundogs transactions today, the team moved Rutherford from the seven-day to the 14-day injured reserve.
