Team Bio

Kevin Koe grew up in the Northwest Territories and represented the region in juniors. After moving to Alberta, he played third for John Morris from 2003-06 and won his first Grand Slam at the Players’ Championship in 2004.

Koe has skipped his own squad since 2006 — joining Blake MacDonald, Carter Rycroft and Nolan Thiessen. At first Koe still threw third stones with MacDonald at fourth until they switched spots in the order in 2009. Team Koe captured Brier and world titles in 2010. Pat Simmons took over at third in 2011 and Koe won his first Grand Slam as a skip the following season at the 2012 Masters. Koe parted ways with the group in 2014 forming a new team with third Marc Kennedy, second Brent Laing and lead Ben Hebert.

Team Koe cleaned up in 2015-16 capturing the inaugural Tour Challenge Tier 1 at the start of the season with Brier and world titles to follow. They were victorious at the Roar of the Rings to represent Canada at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics but fell just short of the podium losing to Switzerland in the bronze-medal match. Koe claimed the 2018 Players’ Championship with the team going undefeated posting a perfect 8-0 record.

B.J. Neufeld and Colton Flasch joined Team Koe in 2018. Neufeld won seven Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling titles as the third for Mike McEwen. Flasch played second for Team Laycock and represented Saskatchewan at the Brier three consecutive years from 2014-16.

Hebert previously played with Koe when he served as the alternate for Team Morris in 2005. He joined Kevin Martin in 2006 and was integral in the team’s legendary run winning Brier and world titles in 2008 plus Olympic gold on home soil at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.
