The men’s curling national champs have welcomed a new skip for next year’s Tim Horton’s Brier.

John Morris, formerly of team British Columbia, replaces Kevin Koe.

He’ll be playing with Grande Prairie’s Carter Rycroft, along with Nolan Thiessen and Pat Simmons.

In a statement, Simmons says the team has always respected Morris as a player and a rival, and looks forward to working together.
