Grande Prairie’s Carter Rycroft is welcoming a new face to Team Canada in men’s curling. R
ycroft had initially announced his intention to retire next year, but after skip Kevin Koe announced his departure from the team last month, plans changed.
Rycroft says they are looking forward John Morris joining the team next season.
“I’ve curled against him forever, I actually got the chance to play with him at a skins game two years ago at the all star skins game. We had a lot of fun, both super competitive guys and bashed heads for years, so maybe we can take a little bit of what we learned against each other and use it to help each other.”
As Rycroft, Nolan Thiessen, and Pat Simmons are sticking together, the team will hold on to their team Canada berth for next year’s Tim Horton’s Brier.
