Edmonton skip Brendan Bottcher has put together a new curling team of Olympic proportions.
Bottcher announced Monday he is joining forces next season with third Marc Kennedy, second Brett Gallant and lead Ben Hebert.
(L-R): Gallant, Bottcher, Hebert, Kennedy
Kennedy and Hebert have captured just about everything there is to win in curling including Olympic gold medals in 2010 with skip Kevin Martin. The pair also represented Canada at the 2018 Winter Games with skip Kevin Koe and finished fourth. Kennedy made a third Olympic appearance this year as the alternate for Brad Gushue and earned a bronze medal.
Gallant previously played second for Gushue and made his Olympic debut this year, winning bronze. The 32-year-old, originally from Charlottetown, is moving west as he’s getting married to Alberta curler Jocelyn Peterman. Gallant won a gold and two silver medals at the men’s worlds, four Brier titles plus 11 Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling championships during his tenure on Team Gushue.
