Veteran skip Kevin Koe is leaving the team that he guided to a national championship.

He will form a new lineup with Marc Kennedy at third, Ben Hebert at lead and Brent Laing at second.

Simmons, Rycroft and Thiessen will name their new skip at a later date.

The team will hold on to its Team Canada title and play in the 2014 Canada Cup of Curling and next year’s Tim Hortons Brier.
