Dawn McEwen, the lead for Team Jones, announced two days earlier that she'd decided to retire at the end of the season. The 41-year-old mom of two young daughters had played with Jones for 14 years.

"We couldn't have more admiration or respect for each other and we will continue to support each other in whatever comes next," the statement said.

Jones won Olympic gold in 2014 in Sochi, a two-time world champion (2008, 2018), and two time Scotties Tournament of Hearts champion.
