Brett Motherwell (born September 11, 1986) is an American former professional ice hockey defenseman who played in the American Hockey League (AHL), the ECHL, and the Austrian Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Motherwell began his career in the United States Hockey League for the River City Lancers and the Omaha Lancers before spending two years with Boston College. Motherwell left Boston College after 1 game and turned pro in the 2006–07 season, signing with the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, playing 48 games for the team during the regular season and 13 playoff games. He also played two games for the ECHL's Elmira Jackals.

In the 2008–09 season, Motherwell signed with the Providence Bruins on October 16, 2008.[1] but after just four games he was later released from his try-out on November 18, 2008.[2] Brett then joined Austrian team, Graz 99ers of the Erste Bank Hockey League.

Motherwell returned to North America and joined the ECHL's Utah Grizzlies training camp for the upcoming 2009–10 season. After he was later released from Utah as a salary cap casualty on November 3, 2009, Motherwell signed with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.[3] After being named the ECHL plus player of the month for February,[4] he was loaned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on a PTO on March 4, 2010.[5] Motherwell remained with the Tigers for the remainder of the year and in 17 games posted 9 assists. Returned from loan to the Cyclones, for the duration of the playoffs, he led from the blueline with 11 point in 18 post season games to capture the Kelly Cup.

On September 22, 2010, Motherwell's rights were traded by the Cyclones to return to the Utah Grizzlies for the rights to Dylan Hunter.[6] However, on September 27, 2010, Brett was then signed to a one-year contract in the AHL to reunite with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers for the 2010–11 season.[7]

On December 6, 2011, it was announced that Motherwell has signed with the Chicago Express of the ECHL.[8]

Motherwell also has a sister who currently plays for the Boston College Women's Ice Hockey Team.[9]
