Gushue Battles Edin in Third World Shootout

The third time is the charm for Canada’s Brad Gushue and Sweden’s Niklas Edin.

The Canadian and Swedish teams will meet in Sunday night’s final of the 2022 world men’s championship, the third such meeting in the past five seasons.

Gushue defeated Edin 4-2 in the 2017 final at Edmonton, Alta. and Edin won the 2018 rematch 7-3 at this year’s venue, the Orleans arena/hotel/casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Gushue holds a career 21-10 won/loss record over Edin, but has lost three consecutive matchups—two games at the Beijing Olympics, including a devastating loss in the semifinal, and the round-robin battle earlier this week in Vegas.
