Kevin Martin of Edmonton has found his third for the 2013-14 curling season and he’s chosen a former world champion as well, in Dave Nedohin.
Nedohin threw fourth stones for Randy Ferbey’s world championship curling team from Edmonton in 2002, 2003 and 2005.
Martin was in search of a third when John Morris left Martin’s team to join Jim Cotter. Martin has already qualified for the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials in Winnipeg while Cotter still has to qualify through a pre-trials event in Kitchener, Ontario in November. The winner of the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials will represent Canada in curling at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
The move by Martin came as a bit of a surprise to some because of the long rivalry between Martin and Ferbey.
