Competition format

As in previous years, four teams will play two semifinals games, and the winners of the semifinals games will meet in the final to determine the winner. However, the teams will be chosen by fan voting and by random draw, similar to All-Star games in other sports.[1] The top ten teams in the Canadian Curling Association's rankings system in the previous year are nominated, and the top four fan voting selections for each position (skip, third, second, lead) will play in the competition. The skips will each randomly draw their third, second, and lead from the top four selections, and the four All-Star teams will compete against each other.[2]


The teams will be determined by a random draw in Toronto on January 17.[3] The players that will compete are listed as follows, ordered by number of votes earned:[4][5]

The teams are listed in draft order by skip.[6] Skips selected their teammates in a snake order, and were not allowed to choose their own teammates unless necessary.

A donation was made to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation on behalf of Pat Simmons, who was selected last among the players.[7]
