According to Gregory Strong of the Canadian Press on Friday, Catlin Schneider of Regina, Saskatchewan will replace Canadian Olympic gold medalist Brad Jacobs of Sault. Ste. Marie, Ontario on Team Carruthers. Jacobs, who won the gold medal for Canada in men’s curling at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, left Team Carruthers for a high-performance team based out of Alberta on April 18.

Schneider will now be representing his third province in the 2024-25 curling season as Reid Carruthers is based out of Manitoba. Schneider was curling for teams based out of Saskatchewan from 2010 to 2017, and again from 2018 to 2023, and teams based out of British Columbia from 2017 to 2018, and again from 2023 to 2024.

This past season Schneider was a skip for the first time and got to represent British Columbia at the Montana’s Brier in his hometown city of Regina. British Columbia had a record of four wins and four losses, but did not make the championship round even though he ironically beat Carruthers 9-8 in Pool A play.

Schneider has been a third at two Briers in the past. He represented Saskatchewan on a team skipped by Shaun Meachem in 2017 and by Colton Flasch in 2022. Schneider was also the second for Matt Dunstone on a team that won the 2019 Masters in North Bay, Ontario, and represented Saskatchewan at the 2020 Brier.
