The Washington Capitals have signed former Manitoba Moose forward Alex Limoges. The Winnipeg Jets decided not to qualify Limoges for the upcoming season, making him a free agent. 

A Winchester, VA, native, Limoges played for the Washington Little Caps from 2010-2013. The 25-year-old then went on to play two seasons with the Tri City Storm of the USHL, and won a USHL Championship in 2016. He then spent one season with the Waterloo Blackhawks. 

Limoges then went on to play four seasons at Penn State, where he led the nation in scoring in his sophomore year with 50 points (23 goals, 27 assists). His 50 points and 23 goals are a Penn State single-season record. The following year he would help lead Penn State to its first Big Ten regular season title.

The 6-foot-1 forward would serve as the captain in his senior year and left the Nittany Lions as the program leader with 0.98 points per game, and third most points in team history with 125.

Limoges signed his first pro contract with the San Diego Gulls, the Anaheim Ducks AHL affiliate, and had 21 points (11 goals, 10 assists) in only 27 games.

He had his first AHL point on Mar. 26, 2021 against Bakersfield. In his first full season with the Gulls, he racked up a team-leading 40 points (23 goals, 17 assists) in 62 games.

This past season with the Moose, Limoges was the team leader with 54 points (20 goals, 34 assists) in 67 games.

    This potential forward corps for the Bears will be stacked. I’m too excited for next season. Go Bears!

    Sorry but that would be his sophomore season in 2018-19 not his rookie year. As he signed a one-year, two-way contract. going to Hershey. AS only a 1 year deal he will be a UFA after next season so if he has any future with the caps he better have a good year and the Caps better sign him before season end.

    I was so happy while writing this. Caps fans, I watched him for two years at Penn State as a student. Only watched one season in person because his senior year was my sophomore and that was COVID.

    First things first, he is an unbelievable person. Very humble and well spoken. I actually got to talk to him early this year for a story I was working on, on one of his childhood friends transferring to Penn State this year. Nothing but class with Limo.

    On the ice, this guy lives in front of the net. He finishes on almost every second and third chance opportunities and he is a very smart playmaker. Has a canon of a shot as well. He also idolized Nicklas Backstrom. Can’t wait to see him tear it up!
