The Jacobs team is gathering two turns for upcoming events as a result of Ryan Fry's announcement that it will leave behind after a "awkward" series of alcohol-induced incidents during a World Curling Tour weekend at Red Deer, Alta. November.
Mark Kennedy will join Brad Jacobs, E.J. Harden and Ryan Harden for the Canadian Cup for 2018 households and Matt Wozniak have been appointed for Curling's National Grand Slam.
Kennedy, from St. Albert, Alta. Is the former third for Kevin Kie, who left the team after the Great Slam of Curling from 2017-2018 Pint. He captivated the Olympic Gold Medal for Canada by skipping Kevin Martin in the Vancouver 2010 games, winning two World Championships and three Bridge Championships in addition to 11 Pint's titles.
Wozniak, from Winnipeg, is Mike McEwan's second-time team. During their 11 years, Mike McCoy's team won the Manitoba Men's title in 2016 and 2017, as well as the Bronze Bronze titles at Tim Hortons Bryer in 2017. They also staked six Pint titles together.
The Canadian Cup is on 5-9 December in Affinity Site in Estavan, Sask. King's Big Slam is held on 11-16 December at Conception Bay South, Nfld.
A team of elite Canadian figures, including Team Jacobs and Olympic champion in 2014, was thrown out of the world tournament on November 17 for "unsportsmanlike" behavior after a drunken, warlike and destructive discussion, the organizers said.
There was a treacherous behavior such as swearing and worrying about other ice teams during two Red Deer Curling Classic events, a World Curling Tour event. Then there were broken brooms from Fry who won a gold medal for Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
