Team Bio

Jason Gunnlaugson made his GSOC debut at the 2007 National playing third for Reid Carruthers. Gunnlaugson branched out on his own skipping his own squad on tour starting in 2009. The Russian Curling Federation recruited Gunnlaugson and his teammates the following season. After returning to Canada, Gunnlaugson played third for Jim Cotter and finished runner-up at the 2012 Masters. He remained with the team the following season as their alternate for the Olympic Trials, with John Morris at the helm, and finished second to Brad Jacobs.

Gunnlaugson joined with Alex Forrest, Ian McMillan and Connor Njegovan in 2017 winning the Tour Challenge Tier 2 title to earn a promotion into the elite ranks. Denni Neufeld, who won seven GSOC titles with Team McEwen, took over at second for McMillan in 2018 and Adam Casey came on board the following year when Neufeld stepped back from competitive curling.

Casey competed in the Brier six straight times representing three different provinces over that span. The P.E.I. native joined Team Gushue at second in 2011 and competed for Newfoundland and Labrador three consecutive years from 2012-14. He returned to P.E.I. in 2014 and skipped his own squad in back-to-back seasons. After the team broke up, Casey linked up with Saskatchewan’s Team Meachem initially throwing second before taking the reins as skip.
