Playing career[edit | edit source]
Moss was selected 220th overall in the seventh round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft and played for the Flames' AHL affiliate, the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights from the 2005–06 season. While with the Knights, he was third in team scoring with 21 goals and 48 points. As the team's leading scoring rookie, Moss also led the Knights with 16 powerplay goals which was tied for third in the league. A late season injury prevented him from playing the entire season.
On December 19, 2006, Moss was recalled by the Calgary Flames, and on that same day scored the game winning goal on his National Hockey League debut against the Los Angeles Kings. He followed this with two more goals in his next two games, both against the Vancouver Canucks, to begin his NHL career with a three-game goal streak.
Moss was a participant for Team USA in the 2010 IIHF World Championship. He also played in the record setting World Championship game at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, when a world record 77,803 viewers saw the host German team beat Team USA 2-1 in overtime.
Moss' 2010-2011 season, despite being shortened by injuries, was one of the most successful of his career. With the Flames' shortage of healthy centres, Moss was pressed into taking faceoffs, a task he showed unexpected success at. Before suffering a shoulder injury, he was also showing promise at supporting the Flames' top scorers.
Personal life[edit | edit source]
Moss is an avid golfer.
